2 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
1 cup Coconut
2 cups Special K or Rice Krispies Cereal
1 cup Dried Fruit (Raisins, Craisins, Apricot etc.)
1 cup Nuts, chopped
1 cup Seeds (Poppyseed, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds etc.)
1/2 cup Butter or Margarine
1/2 cup Honey
1 cup Brown Sugar

In a bowl combine oats through to seeds. Put butter, honey and brown sugar into a large pot and stir until bubbling, over medium heat. Add dry ingredients and stir constantly for 7 to 8 minutes. Lower heat if mixture is browning too quickly. Press into lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and let cool. Cut into bars & wrap individually.

My combination of ingredients was: special k, raisins, chopped cashews & chopped macadamia nuts, poppyseed, sesame seed, sunflower seeds and ground flaxseed. SO delicious!

I honestly don't think I'll be buying granola bars ever again! These are very easy to make and taste really really good. SO fun that you can add whatever you like (as far as seeds, nuts & dried fruit)

They are quite sweet though, next time I wouldn't use a full cup of brown sugar AND I'd use unsweetened coconut.

Can I say again how much I LOVE this site? Seriously! I have got to send you some new holiday recipes.

love this one especially. With Ryan teaching and needing a lunch packed every day and Jacob constantly snacking on them we go through a TON of granola bars.
