A Rice Krispie Treat Redo – “Raisin Krunchers Snack Bars”

Our kids have off from school today because the teachers have an inservice day. Here is a great snack from Sun-Maid Raisins to make together today so they have a healthy snack for the rest of the school week. I use Arrowhead Mills puffed brown rice cereal (can be found in the gluten-free section) and decrease the amount in the recipe from 2 1/2 cups to just 2 cups. I find they stick together better without as much cereal.

RAISIN KRUNCHERS

Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter (preferably natural style)
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups toasted rice cereal
2 cups old-fashioned oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup Sun-Maid Natural Raisins

Directions:

LINE an 8-inch square pan with foil, extending over opposite ends of pan (or lightly coat with cooking spray).
PLACE peanut butter, honey and brown sugar in large microwave-safe bowl.
HEAT on high power for 2 minutes until bubbly and heated through. Remove bowl from microwave.
ADD vanilla; stir until mixture is smooth.
ADD cereal, oats and raisins. Gently stir without crushing cereal.
PRESS warm mixture very firmly into prepared pan.
COOL at room temperature or refrigerate for 30 minutes.
LIFT out of pan if using foil; cut into bars.
STORE bars in plastic wrap or tightly covered container, at room temperature or in refrigerator.
