From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. The
original recipe was for granola bars. After my
changes I'm not sure how healthy they are, but they
are my latest addiction. I wrap individual bars in wax
paper. May store at room temp, but refrigerate in
warm weather. They freeze well.
In a large bowl, combine:
2 c QUICK COOKING oats (not rolled oats)
1 1/4 c Rice Krispy cereal
In a small pot melt:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 c peanut butter
Stir on low until it begins to simmer.
Remove from heat.
1 tsp vanilla
Stir everything together until well coated.
Coat a 13x9 pan with cooking spray.
Pack mixture into pan. Press down firmly or it will fall
apart. Refrigerate 10 minutes.
Melt 7 ounces chocolate bark (I use the
Spread over almost granola. Refrigerate until
chocolate layer is set. Cut into 12-14 bars.

everyone sees it."
To make Gluten Free Almost Granola Bars:
Use gluten free oats, crispies, & chocolate. Use sunbutter
instead of peanut butter. Yummy! I'm gonna add some dried
cherries & coconut next time.
