Homemade granola bars
I got this recipe off the internet somewhere--if it came from here, thanks to whoever posted it! I have to make these at least 3 times a week.
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened
2 Tbsp. honey or corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal, or crushed bran flakes, corn flakes, or crushed graham crackers
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips*
In a large bowl, cream sugars and margarine 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 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars. Save the crumbs for yogurt or ice cream topping. Makes 24 bars.
*The following may be used in addition to or to replace chocolate chips:
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup nuts
1/2 - 1 cup raisins, dried apples, or apricots
1/2 cup fruit preserves
I make these using corn syrup, rice Krispies, and chocolate chips. They are really good with peanut butter, too, but I don't make them due to peanut restrictions at the kids' schools.

These are chewy...I make them all the time and it is one of my families fav's!!!
Excellent recipe, and so forgiving...I have used chopped apples in it too w/o the choc chips, and it was yummy!!

Arlene is right, they are on the chewy side, but I guess if you left them out on the counter uncovered for a few days, they'd be crunchy!
