This gets the BIG 5 !! I could not find Kirkland cereal, so subbed with Nature's Path Organic Sunflower Agave Granola Cereal, and added 1/2 cup sliced almonds and 1/2 cup organic cranberries. Used some new palmetto honey from the Honey Swap and cut the sugar by 1/2. DH, DSis and my mom Mimi just loved these bars ~ honey sweet with the mellow taste of peanut butter. I really enjoyed how easy these were to put together ~ a definite keeper recipe. Thanks Beegirl :) Made for PAC SPRING 2009!

  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over the cereal and mix to evenly coat. Press into the prepared pan and allow to cool 45-60 minutes.
