Easily ADDICTIVE! These colorful bars provide crunchiness, energy and a cure for the munchies! Great for lunchboxes, hikes, trips or after a workout at the gym. Our hands can't stay out of the cookie jar on these!
Line a 9 x 13 inch sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix rolled oats, cereal, craisins, coconut and almonds in a large bowl. Set aside. (I cut the coconut with two knives so it will not be stringy.)
In a saucepan, mix corn syrup and brown sugar. Bring to a boil while stirring. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir just to blend well.
Pour over oats and fruit mixture. Stir and mix well. Press mixture firmly onto pan. (I place a piece of wax paper on top while pressing hard.) Let cool and cut into bars. Store in air-tight container. Freezes well, if securely wrapped.
