Home-Made Granola Bars

Today I made these delicious home-made granola bars.  I decided there is way too much sugar and unnatural ingredients in store bought ones so I think making these may become a regular occurrence.

The recipe is really simple and easy to customize and change to whatever suites your taste.
So here it is if you would like to give it a try.

3/4 cup      natural peanut butter
3/4 cup      honey (I used pure creamed honey)
1 1/2 cup   oats
1 1/4 cup   rice crisps, millet or hemp hearts (I used organic whole grain brown crispy rice, you could use a mixture)
1 cup         slivered almonds (any type of nut would work)
1 cup         dried fruit

melt p.b. and honey in microwave for about a minute
stir all dry ingredients together, then gradually add the p.b. and honey mixture
put in cake pan and squish down evenly.
place in freezer and let harden
cut into desired size

*This makes about 16 bars depending on the size you want and is best stored in fridge or freezer.
