Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 9
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups whole grain flake cereal
  • 1 cup whole grain Cheerios
  • ½ cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • ½ cup dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins, chopped apricots or figs
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup packed golden brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Prepare an eight-inch square baking pan by lightly greasing it. Set this aside until you are ready to use it.
  2. Pour the different cereals into a medium bowl. Then add the peanuts and dried fruit. Stir the dry ingredients together to combine them thoroughly. In a medium saucepan, put the honey, brown sugar and peanut butter. Bring these ingredients to a boil over medium heat being sure to stir constantly.
  3. Pour the melted peanut butter mixture over the cereal and stir it until it is well coated. Press the mixture into the prepared baking dish and press it with the back of an oiled spoon to ensure it is even. Set the pan aside and allow it to cool. Cut the mixture into nine even pieces.
