My kids after school snack often turns into their Third Meal of the Day. They come home so hungry that I have to balance giving them enough to fill them up but not giving them so much that they will not eat dinner.
We usually stick with:
nuts (almonds and pistachios),
fruit (they love apples, strawberries, blueberries),
a medium-sized saucepan, combine honey, brown sugar and oil. Warm
gently over low heat while stirring until the sugar crystals have
in the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Remove from the
heat. Allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes.
Stir in the flaxseed, followed by the oats and cereal.
Let the mixture cool for a few more minutes (so the chocolate chips will not melt) and then stir in the chocolate chips.
mixture will be crumbly. Press firmly into a 9x12 pan (put your had in a
sandwich bag with a little oil on it to press it in). Place in the
refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes to an hour. Cut into bars.
They will be very hard when they first come out of the refrigerator but loosen up as they get warm.
Store in the refrigerator. Click HERE for a Printable Version of this Recipe.
