Make your own Granola Bars
This week I was able to get Post cereal for .17 cents a box. We like to make our own granola / cereal bars. At this price you can’t go wrong.
Start out with 8 cups of cerea,l I used Blueberry Morning. Honey Bunches of Oats, or any Post Selects cereal works great too.
Then add 1 cup coconut,
1/2 cup sun flower seed,
1/2 cup crasins.
(You can use what ever you like, nuts, berrys, dried fruit.)
Mix together in a large bowl
In a large sauce pan, add
1 stick butter ( 8 TBSP)
3/4 cup Light Karo Syrup
3/4 cup sugar
On Medium/High heat
Stir till well blended
Boil for only 2 minutes, take off heat and add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pour over the top of your cereal nut mixture. Stir well
Pour into a buttered 9×13 pan. FIRMLY press into the bottom. If you do not press it down enough, they will not stick together.
Let cool for 1 hour. Then cut into bars, it makes 18 large bars.
Bag them, they stay fresh about a week. Or you can Freeze them.
Do you have a cereal recipe you would like to share?
