Fruit & Nut Granola Bars

Fruit & Nut Granola Bars

3 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup Rice Krispie cereal

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 cup walnuts, chopped

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1 cup dried cranberries, chopped

1 cup dried apples, chopped

1 1/2 cups honey

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Prepare a 9 x 13-inch pan by lining with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to over hang the sides of the pan slightly.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, cereal, chia seeds, walnuts, almonds, cranberries, and apples; mix well.

In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine honey and peanut butter, stirring until melted together. Pour the melted mixture over the oat mixture and stir together. Firmly press the granola mixture into the prepared pan, then bake for 25 minutes. Cool, then lift the foil from the pan and cut into bars.
