Hippie Bars!!!

another Roots favorite...(a long list of ingredients but you can get all them at OB Peoples Co-op)

1 cup butter, room temp
2/3 cup evaporated cane sugar
1 cup rapadura sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ (toast raw wheat germ in a pan on low heat until it smells toasted)
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup raw hemp seed (no, these won't get you high)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1&1/2 cups chocolate chips (fair trade, of course; let's not support slavery for African children)

Beat butter and sugars until well-combined.  Add eggs, pb & vanilla and mix until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, mix together flours, wheat germ, oats, hemp seed, baking soda & salt.  Then mix into the wet ingredients.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Press dough into a buttered 13"x9" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 28 minutes.


  1. I can't wait to make them!!! Do you think I can find rapadura sugar in KC? What is it? I wanna make 'em for my road trip :)))

  2. hiya! rapadura is dried sugar cane juice. it's unrefined and high in iron. try your local health food store or you can substitute brown sugar.
