There are about a gadzillion recipes for homemade energy bars out there (Clif or otherwise).  Google is your friend.

Some are pretty heavy on sugar, some aren't.  Some have more protein, etc.  Find one with ingredients close to what you're aiming for, modify the recipe if you so desire, and have at it.

My favorite right now is a non-bake recipe that's served me well.  It's fairly non-specific, no two batches end up the same for me (a good thing). I'll see if I can find it online; having trouble locating it at the moment.  But back to the point, the interwebs are flush within enough recipes out there to satisfy nearly any style of bar you wanna make.  Find what works best for you.  YMMV.

sigh...
OP said Clif Bars were too expensive. Online $24 for 24 bars
Honey Stinger bars. Online $27 for 15.
I'm not sure they meet the "cheaper" criteria... :;):

http://powerhungry.com/2008/06/homemade-cliff-bars-no-bake/ is one of the easier homemade versions with ingredients found in small-ish grocery stores

Hey. I tried the powerhungry recipe but made a few adjustments. I added salted sunflower seeds and chia seeds. It tastes awesome but not like clif bars. Good enough for me!

Anything that tastes awesome would be unlike Clif bars.

However, I'm glad you figured out something you like.
