Raisin Healthy Crispy Crunchers

My brother eats Kashi bars. He eats like 3 a day, maybe more, I don't know.  I know he buys tons of them.  Clearly he loves his bars. 

He came to me with this recipe from one of his running magazines.  I made them right away. 

I was privileged enough to actually get to eat one before he ate the rest of them and requested more. 

Yea, they were good. Very good.  

Raisin Healthy Crispy Cruncher Recipe

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
3 tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups toasted rice crispies
2 cups old fashioned oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup golden raisins

Spray an 8 in. baking pan with cooking spray.

Put peanut butter, honey and brown sugar in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat for 2 minutes until bubbly.  Add vanilla and stir.  Add cereal, oats and raisins.  Stir lightly until mixture is evenly combined.  Press warm mixture very firmly into prepared pan.  Cool at room temperature or refrigerator.  Cut into 12 bars.

  2. This does look very good-probably better than original Kashi bars and definitely cheaper to make than by the carton loads.


  3. when I'm able to run again, I'm SO making these for pre-run fuel! Thanks!

  4. these look delicious...i love kashi bars too..i guess it is about time i save some coin and make my own--thanks for sharing this recipe :)

  5. Wow, that's a lot of kashi bars!! Love your version though - happy Saturday Debbi!

  6. I'll have to try these. The husband eats my homemade granola bars at work--3-5 bars/day. These might be good for a variety!

  7. These sound great! I will have to try them soon!

  8. These look good! I get sick of all the bars from the store so this is a great alternative.
