Ingredients:

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter such as almond or cashew butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (or your favorite dried fruit, diced)
  • 5 cups high fiber cereal (we used Kashi Go Lean! Crisp cereal)

Method:

In a large mixing bowl, pour in honey, vanilla and salt. Heat in the microwave until mixture is thin and watery, about 60 seconds. Add peanut butter and stir until it melts. Add dried fruit and cereal and combine until cereal is well coated. Line a baking dish with wax paper and spread cereal mixture evenly into pan and press firmly to set. Leave to cool overnight or place in refrigerator. When bars are hard, cut into squares.
