Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bar

Some pro cyclists had left this recipe at Barb’s house so we decided to try it. I mean, they were fast so they must know how to cook, right?! (logical fallacy)

3 c crispy rice cereal
3 c toasted oats
1 1/2 c rasins
3/4 c sunflower nuts
1 c honey
1 (16 oz) jar natural peanut butter
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 c chocolate chips
any other yummy things from the cupboard

1. Combine cereal, raisins, sunflower nuts, chocolate chips in large bowl.
2. Heat honey to boil for one minute. Add peanut butter and vanilla, stir until peanut butter is melted.
3. Pour over cereal mixture; mix well.
4. Press mixture into greased (or foil-lined) baking pan. When cool cut into squares.

The cutting into squares part didn’t really work for me. It more just crumbled into chunks of various sizes. Next time I might try packing the mix into round balls and letting it cool down that way. This makes a great post-workout snack.
