  • 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.

This was so easy and very tasty. I had to substitute pine nuts instead of sunflower seed kernels and I didn't have any flaxseeds and I used a healthy granola mix kind of cereal instead of granola but I am very happy with the result. It might rate a five star if I had all of the proper ingredients. I gave it four stars because it was a little soft and sticky but I think that was because of my substitutions. The flavor is incredible and although soft they held together pretty well. Read More

The only changes I made were: I used dark brown sugar creamed peanut butter with chopped peanuts and my home made granola/muesli. Was a little dry/crumbly. I think this is a great base and just have to play with measurements to get the right consistency with my own granola. Read More

I think this is a great recipe! I liked them better the 2nd day as I think they needed to kind of mix together better. My only substitution was crunchy almond butter for the peanut butter. Read More
