Any combination of nuts, fruit, chocolate and seeds can be used in this recipe.
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats, can substitute crisped rice cereal for half
1/2 cup coconut
1/3 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup total of nuts, dried fruit, and seeds (sesame and flax)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9″ X 13″ pan.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Stir in remaining ingredients and work the mixture so that several large clumps stick together. Using your fingers, press the mixture into the pan very firmly.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until it turns a golden brown (it usually takes me a little longer)
Allow to cool completely before cutting. Cut into 1 1/2″ X 4″ bars. Wrap individually in plastic wrap.
These freeze well. Can double into 12′ x 17″ pan.
