No Bake Granola Bars

2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix rice crispies, oats and raisins in a large bowl. Cook corn syrup and brown sugar over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir into the cereal mixture. Press into a 9 x 13 ungreased pan.

**My notes
I use a handful of mini chocolate chips and omit the raisins. It does melt the choc. chips some, but the taste is really good. I lightly spray the pan with Pam even though the recipe says an ungreased pan. These are really good and chewy. My kids love them.

And that's with subbing chocolate chips for the raisins!

I've been buying the reduced fat granola bars, which are 2 pts each. For only one extra point, I think I'll save myself some money and make these!

BTW, that's with cutting them 4X5 for 20 servings.

Thanks, Tammy!!

Ooops...can I post this here? If not, just delete it, Tammy.

SOFT GRANOLA BARS


1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 c. quick cook or regular oats
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour OR 1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. raisins or chopped dried dates
1 c. chopped nuts or flaked coconut
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt


Honey Glaze--recipe follows

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13" baking dish. Mix the brown sugar, oil, and eggs in a large bowl, stirring until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients; mix well. Spread into a pan, smoothing with a spatula and patting the dough down with your fingers. Bake until the center is set but not firm, 17-22 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and drizzle with Honey Glaze. Cool completely, then cut into bars. Store tightly covered for up to two weeks or freeze up to six months. Bake just until the center is set but not firm.

HONEY GLAZE
1/4 c. honey
2 T. margarine or butter

Bring to a quick boil, stirring constantly until the butter has melted.

The BEST Kellogg’s All-Bran Muffins

1 c. boiling water
3 c. All-Bran cereal, DIVIDED (I've been using 4 c. lately)
1 c. oil (I use 2/3 c. applesauce and 1/3 c. oil)
1 1/2 c. sugar (I've been experimenting with only 1 c.)
2 c. buttermilk*
2 1/2 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt (I omit)
1 tsp. cinnamon (I use 2 tsp.)
2 beaten eggs
chopped nuts and raisons, optional (I omit these)

Pour 1 c. boiling water over 1 c. All-Bran cereal. Let stand; meanwhile, mix the remainder
of the ingredients (including the remaining 2 c. of dry All-Bran) in another bowl. Finally,
combine the water-soaked All-Bran with the rest of the batter.

Bake in muffin tins for 18-20 minutes at 400 degrees. Delicious!

*NOTE: I substitute 2 c. milk plus 2 T. lemon juice for the buttermilk. Mix these together
first and let stand while preparing the rest of the ingredients.

This batter can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for quite a while. I usually just make
6-12 muffins at a time, and the recipe yields between 2 to 2 1/2 dozen muffins (depending
on how big you like your muffins). These are so good reheated!

Chewy Granola Bars
1/2 C butter
1 C light brown sugar
1/4 C granulated sugar
2 TBSP honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 C oats (I use quick)
1 1/4 C crisp rice cereal
1 C mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 C wheat germ
1/4 C coconut (I don't use this)
I also grind up some flax seed and put it in there...about 1/4 C

Preheat over to 350. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add honey, vanilla and egg and mix well. Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats and cereal. Add choc chips. Press firmly into a 13 X 9 pan. Bake 25 min or until top is lightly browned. This basic recipe is from The Dollar Stretcher plus a few extra things I threw in.

Add some coconut
Great with nuts (also chocolate chips if you want)
Add a little cinnamom

Substitute half honey or all honey for half or all of the corn syrup.

This is a great recipe and I have had fun changing it every week.

Hint: After you spread the mixture into the pan, press down hard with a spatula going both directions.

I spray my hands with Pam and then press these down in the pan hard. They stay together and cut better when you press them down good.
