Yummy Chewy Granola Bars
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
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.
