Home Made Granola Bars

These Granola Bars are very easy to make,,,,and again you can add what you like to them!,,,,,My daughter is always bringing Granola Bars to work to snack on,,,so we thought we would come up with our own!,,,,Here is what we did,,,,Enjoy!!

2 C crispy rice cereal
2 C quick oats (I use gluten free)
1/3 C nuts of your choice,,(we used sliced almonds)
1/3 C Craisins (we used cherry infused flavor)
Put ingredients above into a large mixing bowl and set aside
2/3 C honey
1/2 C peanut butter
1/4 C light brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
put these into a microwaveable bowl and cook for 1 minute
stir mixture when done
add to dry mixture and incorporate well
once all mixed and not too hot (chips will melt) we added 1/3 C mini chocolate chips
prepare an 8x 8 pan with a piece of foil or wax paper overlapping in 2 sides and spray with cooking spray
pour mixture into pan and press down to make even
then put into freezer to set for about an hour
once done,,,pull 2 sides of foil up to remove from pan....then slice as you like!
So have fun with these...I think pumpkin seeds would be a great addition also or dried cherries...but
like I said,,,add your favorites to make them to your liking!
I store these in a container and refrigerate!
