I've tried quite a few homemade granola bar recipes. This one is awesome.
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal (I used Barbara's)
1 cup chocolate chips or other addition
In a large bowl, cream sugars and butter until fluffy. Add honey,vanilla and egg. Mix well. Blend in flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir in remaining ingredients. Press firmly into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Do NOT overbake! I recommend cutting them before they are completely cooled. They firm up when cooled.
