Fay goes to school full time while she also works full time. She's always on the go and looking for a healthy, filling snack to keep her brain working at the speed of her body! I make these bars occasionally and pack a container in her car for her to eat at will while she's on the go. These bars are absolutely phenomenal and you can make them in about a million different ways.
These bars are adapted from a Smucker's recipe. I've changed it considerably to suit our needs.
3 cups Rice Krispies
3 cups Cheerios
1 cup raisins (we prefer the golden raisins)
3/4 cup sunflower seed and pepita mix
1 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1-16oz jar Smucker's Chunky Natural Peanut Butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine cereals, raisins, and sunflower/pepita mix in large bowl.
Combine honey and sugar in medium saucepan; heat over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for one minute.
Add peanut butter and vanilla; stir until peanut butter is melted. Pour over cereal mixture and mix well.
Spray a 13 X 9 pan with non stick cooking spray. Press mixture into pan. Cool and cut into squares.
