Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

(from Pinching Your Pennies)

1/2 cup peanut butter (or other type of nut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1 cup oats (instant, quick or old fashioned) Use a bit less and add to desired texture
1/2 chopped unsalted nuts and/or seeds (any combination you like)
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (any that you like)or Chocolate Chips
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Place peanut butter and honey in a small saucepan and heat over low heat just until melted enough to combine thoroughly with a whisk. Mixture does not need to be very hot. It just needs to be mixed and a little bit of heat helps that.

Overlap two pieces of Saran Wrap that will cover the entire bottom, sides and wrap around the top of Bars.

Put the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the combined peanut butter and honey. Stir just until well combined. Add more oats if mixture seems too wet. Pour mixture into pan and distribute as evenly as possible. I bring the Saran Wrap from the sides to the top and press down with my hands.

Refrigerate or freeze till firm. Cut into desired sizes, individually wrap or put in small ziploc bags in freezer.
