I made these recently, except for the butter, oats and krispies I didn’t even measure, the amounts listed are close to what I used though, I used large flake oats, quick cooking should work also

1 1/2 cups large flake oats

1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

1 tablespoons dry skim milk powder, if you don’t have any then you can omit

1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts

2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup corn syrup

1/3 cup brown sugar, reduce slightly for less sweeter taste (I have a sweet tooth)

1/4 to 1/3 cup peanut butter, depending on how much PB flavor you want

1 teaspoon vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS:———————————————-

In a large bowl combine oats with the next 3 dry ingredients.

In a small saucepan combine honey, corn syrup and brown sugar; bring to a boil stirring constantly (be careful this boils high). Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes stirring frequentely. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth and combined; immediately pour over the oat mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.

Transfer to a greased 11 x 7-inch pan.  Using slightly wet hands, press down mixture in the pan.

Allow to cool, then cut into bars.
