Trail Mix Bars
4 TBS unsalted butter
3 TBS honey
1 1/3 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup Cheerios
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup salted peanuts or pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 325F. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment or other baking paper and lightly grease.
Put the butter and honey in a small saucepan and heat gently until the better has melted. Set aside to cool.
Put the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the cooled butter mixture and mix well. Transfer to the prepared pan and press down firmly with a potato masher. Bake for 30 minutes or until the center is just firm to the touch.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then mark into eight bars, using a sharp knife. Allow to cool completely before lifting from the pan. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 8 bars.
