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.

Purchase the long thin French baguette bread for this

There is a reason why garlic powder is used in place of fresh garlic, since the butter/garlic mixture is brushed on the baking sheet fresh garlic tends to burn on the pan

3/4 cup butter (not substitutes)

2 teaspoons garlic powder ( or to taste)

1 to 2 tablespoon dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

freshly grated parmesan cheese (use as much as you like)

shredded mozzarella cheese (optional,  use as much as you like)

INSTRUCTIONS:—————————————-

Slice the baguette into thin slices diagonally.

Microwave the butter and garlic powder and salt until melted.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Using a pastry brush coat he bottom of a large baking sheet with butter/garlic mixture.

To remaining melted butter mixture mix in the dried parsley.

Using a pastry brush, coat each side of the bread slices with the melted butter mixture.

Place slices on baking sheet.

Bake for about 5-6 minutes then turn over the slices sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese and bake about 4-5 minutes more, depending on how crispy you like them.
