Backpacker Bars

I made these the other night with the help of Sariah and Elijah. If you have ever been to Chili's Restaurant and had their dessert called Paradise Pie (?? something like that), these taste just the same, you'd just add vanilla ice cream and fudge topping. YUMMY!

1 1/2 cups Golden Grahams cereal (I used generic)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons oats

1. Heat oven to 350 F. Crush cereal. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in flour, cereal, 3/4 cup oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in 3/4 cup of the walnuts and 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips.

2. Spread in ungreased 13 x 9 pan. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts and remaining chocolate chips and 2 Tablespoons oats.

3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut into bars.

To copy Chili's, you'd also want to melt some cinnamon butter on the plate before serving. :)
