On The Go Breakfast

Since my dear, sweet son #2 takes forever to get ready in the morning I am always on the lookout for a quick, make ahead, eat on the go kind of breakfast. When I came across this wonderful looking recipe I couldn't wait to try it. After some changes to the original recipe this is what I ended up with.


 No-Bake Rice Krispy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

  2 1/4- 2 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
    2 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats                                    
    1/2    cup brown sugar, packed
    1/2 cup  honey, or 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
    3/4 cup  peanut butter
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    3/4 cup dark raisin, or a combination of different baking chips, nuts, dried fruit
    ( I used  about 1/2 cup golden raisins and  1/4 cup craisins)
    1/2 cup chocolate chips, semi- sweet, milk chocolate or white chips will all work. I used a combination of leftover baking chips.

  Directions:

    - lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
    - In a large bowl combine Rice Krispies cereal, oats and raisins, nuts ( if using).
    - In a saucepan stir the  honey or corn syrup  and brown sugar until just at a boil.
    - Immediately remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla and stir until well    combined.
    - Pour over the dry ingredients in the bowl; mix to combine.
    - Mix in chocolate chips (if using).
    - Transfer the mixture into prepared baking dish, then using slightly wet hands push evenly down into the pan.
    - While the mixture is still soft take a sharp knife and slice into desired size bars.
    - Chill until firm.  This post is linked to Tasty Tuesday,
