Granola Bars

These are the most delicious granola bars.  I love making them.  My kids think they are great.  I hope that your family will enjoy these as much as ours does.

Granola Bars

2 1/2 cups corn flakes
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey or light corn syrup
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins

In a large bowl combine corn flakes and oatmeal.  Set aside.  Grease a 9x13 pan with oil or cooking spray.  In a sauce pan combine the brown sugar and honey and heat over medium heat.  Heat just until boiling remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla.  Stir until smooth.  Pour over the cereal and oats and mix well.  Once mixed well add your chocolate chips* or raisins.  Press into greased pan.  Use the back of a spoon or I like to place wax paper over it and press it down.  Let cook then cut into squares and enjoy.

*  If your chocolate chips are frozen they wont melt to much :)
