kashi golean snack bars

Okay. I'm making these a couple of times a week for school treats. I hope they're reasonably healthy.

3 or 4 cups Kashi Golean cereal
1 cup oats
1/2 dried cranberries
1/3 cup raisins
1 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter

Put fruit and oats into a food processor--and the almonds if they're huge.

heat the syrup and sugar until they are boiling. Turn off heat. Add peanut butter (and the original recipe has some vanilla) Stir to blend

Add fruit and cereals. mix well. Usually I end up using my hands.
Press with hands into 9x13 pan that's been sprayed with fat stuff. Put this in the fridge and then cut up and hide from the boys so they're for freaking SCHOOL snack.

  1. I just stumbled across your blog while searching for kashi go-lean recipes. I love Kashi Go-Lean because it is such a good tasting cereal with a high percentage of protein which is what I need. I try to eat every meal in a balanced way by determining the portions; my portions are 50% carb, 20% fat and 30% protein and Kashi Go-Lean fills this need. I will try your recommendation because it will be nice to change it up a bit.
    Thanks for the post.

    P.S. Here is my post on Kashi-Go Lean so you can see it really is a healthy cereal:

  2. I'll have to try this, but our need to be nut free as the school is a nut free environment. I'll make nutty ones for home. Now...where to find brown rice syrup?
