Begin by "greasing" a 9x13 pan. I would probably use coconut oil, but because I was almost out, I used butter.
In a small saucepan over medium heat combine:
- 1/2 c. honey
- 1/2 c. peanut butter (I made my own)
- 2 Tbsp. Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil (again since I was almost out of coconut oil, I used grapeseed oil)
- 1/4 c. Sucanat
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Heat until mixture just begins to bubble. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla.
In a large bowl combine:
- 2 cups oats
- 2 cups crisp brown rice cereal
- 1/4 milled flax seed
- 1/2 cup roasted peanuts
- 1/2 raisins
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Pour peanut butter mixture over oatmeal mixture and stir. Press into baking dish, cover with parchment paper and press firmly into dish. Cool in fridge.
Warning, it did not get very sticky, and does fall apart a bit. They taste great, though. I will be doing some experimenting with ingredients like sunflower seeds, hemp seed, almonds, and other dried fruits. I will post the ones that work. If you have any suggestions for other ingredients, I will try that too.
