Megan's Granola Bar Recipe

In the pan (before being cut)

Megan made these for our family last summer and they were wonderful. I made them tonight so that we can enjoy them tomorrow at the beach!

Melt together until very hot, but not boiling:

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup honey (I used Agave nectar)

Pour over dry ingredients and mix well.

2 cups rice crispies
2 cups corn flakes (measure, then crush)
4 cups quick oats
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup toasted coconut
1 cup sunflower seeds

Once it cools you can add dried fruit, raisins, chocolate chips, cinnamon etc. Press into a cookie sheet and bake at 300* for approximately 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.

These are similar, but better than the granola bars you can buy at the store!
