Ingredients: Oats (quick or old fashioned - I've used both), Walnuts, Flaxseed, Wheat Germ, Puffed Cereal (you know like Honey Smacks without the sugar and honey), Dried Fruit (any kinds), Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, Honey and Vanilla
(Notice the jar of honey? It's from the local Amish stores :)
Note: If you don't have flaxseed or wheat germ, leave them out and add few extra oats :) This recipe is very forgiving!
Add all of the dry ingredients...
I used about 1/2 cup of dried mixed berries and 1/2 cup dried blueberries - because this is what hubby bought at the store. :o)
Stir all the dry ingredients.
Add the brown sugar, honey and peanut butter to your pan.
Stop, don't forget to spray a 9x13 pan before you melt the ingredients. Once it is melted, you move somewhat quickly - but not as quickly as Rice Krispie bars.
Stir for a few minutes.
It doesn't take long to get bubbly. Then you're done. Add the vanilla after you remove it from the heat.
Pour it over your dry mixture and stir.
This is what it will look like.
Pour it into your pan and spread out.
Pat it firmly.
I usually refrigerate for a little while, then cut into different sized bars in case someone isn't that hungry. (Oh, okay, I can't cut straight to save my life.) I wrap mine in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator.
Grab and go!
2 cups oats

2 cups unsweetened puffed cereal
1 cup total dried fruits
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky - add a little extra if using chunky)

Anyway...What do YOU usually eat for breakfast?
