Assembly Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the crisp rice cereal, corn flake cereal, quick oats, baking powder, nuts, coconut, raisins and sunflower seeds. Place the margarine, brown sugar, vanilla and honey in a sauce pan. Heat on medium heat until hot but not boiling. Pour the hot mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. Press into a large jelly roll pan. Bake for about 17-18 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

Freezing Directions:
Cut into bars. Place in either a freezer container or individual snack bags within a larger freezer bag. Seal, label, and freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw and enjoy!

If you want to add chocolate chips to the bars, let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes or so before adding the chocolate chips or they will melt. Add 1 C. of chocolate chips (I like the mini ones) per recipe. You could even add peanut butter, butterscotch chips, dried fruit, or even create a s’mores type granola bar with some crushed graham crackers, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows.

You need to let them cool well before cutting or they will fall apart, once cooled they are very nice chewy granola bars!!

I have made them with 4 C. crisp rice cereal, 4 C. corn flake cereal, 4 C. oats, 1 C. chopped walnuts, and 3 t. baking powder and didn't add any coconut or raisins or sunflower seeds with great results!
