Food Storage Friday: Granola Bars

These chewy granola bars are delicious and made with only nonperishables. This is the basic recipe, feel free to add in anything you like.


The ingredients: Oats, Rice cereal, peanut butter, corn syrup, vanilla and brown sugar.



Start by putting the brown sugar and corn syrup on the stove to boil.


While you're waiting, mix the oats and cereal...



...and line a 9x13 pan with wax paper.



When your mixture boils, remove from heat...


...and add peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until combined.



Add to the cereal and oats...



...stir until the oats and cereal are covered by the peanut butter mixture. If you are adding any extras, wait a few minutes until it's not so hot to stir them in.



Dump the mixture into the pan and spread out evenly with your fingers.



Wait 15-20 minutes, and then slice with a pizza cutter.



These are hard to resist, they are so good!

Those look so good! What a great way to use your long-term food storage. I think I would add chocolate chips and craisins to mine.
