Granola Bars

I am always on the look out for a new granola bar recipe.  Here's the latest based on the recipe from a friend at church.

Melt together:
1 cup honey
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup dates, finely chopped

Take off heat and add:
2 tsp vanilla
1½ tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

Mix together:
3 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut
2 cups dried cranberries
2/3 cup total sunflower and / or pumpkin seeds
2/3 cups chopped pecans or almonds

Stir the wet and dry together and press onto a large, greased cookie sheet.

I love this recipe because you can sub whatever you have on hand.  This time, some crushed Vector supplemented the krispies.  The original recipe called for an additional cup of dried apricots.


  1. and if you do it right - it's gluten free.... :) I may be trying this one.
