Trail Food - Sweet Treat Granola Bars

Sweet Treat Granola Bars

By Barbara Ouradnik

These granola bars rival any that you could find in the store!  They are soft and chewy and the perfect treat for that energy break half way up the mountain!  We like to experiment with different dried fruits or flavors of granola…it is very customizable!

·         3 Tbsp Butter
·         10 oz pkg mini marshmallows
·         2 c. Crisped Rice Cereal
·         2 c. Vanilla Almond granola
·         1 c. mini chocolate chips or mini m&m’s
Additional items (optional)
·         1 c. peanuts
·         1 c. raisins or other dried fruit

In a large pot, melt the butter slowly and add the marshmallows.  Heat gently until all is melted and smooth.
Stir in the other ingredients (except chocolate chips or m&m’s), making sure all are mixed well.
Pour into 9”x13” pan and spread evenly.  Top with mini chocolate chips.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Cut into bars & wrap individually. 

Best if eaten within 4 days.
