Making granola bars at home is far cheaper than buying prepackaged ones at the store, and it lets you avoid corn syrup. With this basic recipe, mix and match ingredients to make the bar your kids prefer. Try flax seeds, peanuts, chocolate chips—anything you like that makes hungry lunchers happy.
|2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats||1 cup toasted sunflower seeds|
|1 1/2 cups crisp rice cereal||3/4 cup honey|
|1/2 cup raisins||1/2 cup light brown sugar|
|1/2 cup dried cranberries|
Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan. In a large bowl, combine the oats, rice cereal, raisins, cranberries and sunflower seeds.
In a small pot over medium-low heat, stir the honey and brown sugar until dissolved. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir.
Spread evenly into the pan and press down firmly with lightly buttered fingers. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until firm, and cut into bars.
