Looking for Recipes for Energy Bars That Travel Well

Good Questions

Q: I'm going on a trip this summer to Micronesia. And while I'm looking forward to the delicious fruit and fresh fish, I wanted to bring along some energy bars (homemade...you know, to avoid paying $4 per bar for the packaged stuff).

Does anyone have a good recipe for energy bars or oatcakes that will travel well without refrigeration?
