  • 2 ½ cups quick oats

  • 2 cups granola (such as Kashi®)

  • ½ cup sunflower seed kernels

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • ¼ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins®)

  • ¼ cup ground flax seeds

  • cup crunchy peanut butter

  • cup honey

  • cup light brown sugar


  1. Mix quick oats, granola, sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, and ground flax seeds together in a large bowl.

  2. Combine peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar together in a saucepan, stirring constantly over medium-low heat until sugar melts, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until well-blended. Press mixture firmly into 9x13-inch pan. Cut into 16 bars.

Cook's Notes:

Any type or flavor peanut butter may be used. My favorite is Planters Cherry Chocolate(R).

The same amount of any dried fruit or nuts may be substituted.
