These are Mike's favorite bars--a combination of energy bars, granola bars, and cereal bars. These can be adapted to your taste with fruits, nuts, seeds, chocolate, etc. Also, depending on your selection of ingredients, you can go 100% natural/organic.

Directions

  1. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Spread chocolate evenly over prepared baking dish.
  2. Toast oats, wheat germ, and flax seed in a non-stick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until oats are lightly golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Transfer oat mixture to a large bowl and stir in crispy rice cereal, cornflake crumbs, almonds, and salt.
  3. Heat honey, peanut butter, brown sugar, agave nectar, canola oil, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until mixture begins to bubble, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture; gently stir until well mixed.
  4. Spread peanut butter-cereal mixture into the baking dish. Place another sheet of parchment over the mixture and firmly press into the dish until even. Allow to completely cool before removing from baking dish and slicing.

Maybe I shouldn't be reviewing this since I changed so much, but I thought this recipe was a great reference if you're experimenting with cereal/granola bars. My changes: I used chopped dried apricots instead of chocolate, 1/4 c or more of wheat flour instead of wheat germ, cheerios instead of rice crispies, frosted mini wheat crumbs instead of corn flake crumbs, half and half almonds and pecans, added a little cococunt and sunflower seeds. Wet ingredients: omitted the peanut butter and agave, reduced the amount of sugar and honey, and added 2 eggs. I mixed it all up then combined it with the dry ingredients, and baked it at 325F for 30 minutes. Yumm. This recipe is so adaptable. And delicious :)

This was a wonderful recipe. Instead of using the crispy rice cereal and corn flakes I used what I had, Life cereal (crunched up), and Honey bunches of oats. And instead of wheat germ I used Oat Bran. It really turned out great! When you boil the honey and peanut butter mixture only let it boil for about 2 minutes. My batch got a little crunchy instead of chewy. But this is a great recipe where you can interchange some of the ingredients.
