Chewy Granola Bars

Chewy Granola Bars

2 C rolled oats
1- 1 1/2 C Honey Nut Cheerios (or your favorite cereal)
3 C miniature marshmallows --I skipped this step and opted for more PB and honey
1/2 C peanut butter
1/4 C honey
2-3 Tbsp butter
1 C dried fruit (I used raisins and dried apple bits, but dried cherries are great in this!)

Also, if they are too gooey, try adding a bit of powdered milk to help them hold up.

1. Preheat oven to 350 F and toast oats for about 15 minutes.
2. While oats are toasting, combine butter and marshmallows in a large pot and melt over low heat.
3. When the marshmallows have just about melted, stir in the peanut butter and honey.
4. Add in the toasted oats, cereal and dried fruit. Stir until well combined.
5. Spread mixture in a greased 8 x 8 baking dish and chill until firm.
6. Once firm, cut into bars.

*I was too impatient to actually toast my oats and just tossed them in the mix untoasted. Toasting them tastes great but is not absolutely necessary :)
