these are delicious and adaptable, I have used almond butter and honey instead of the peanut butter and corn syrup and had good results. they were just softer, so maybe cut the honey back a bit, or add more granola!

Ingredients

INGREDIENTS
3/4 c
golden corn syrup
1/3 c
chunky peanut butter
3 c
granola (favorite kind)
1/2 c
chopped dates
1/3 c
chopped dried apricots
1/4 c
toasted sunflower seeds
1/4 c
wheat germ
1/4 c
toasted sesame seeds
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
dried cranberries

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place syrup in a large bowl and microwave for 1 minute. add peanut butter, blend and microwave again another minute or until all melty and blended.
2
In another bowl, blend all the dry ingredients together, add to the hot syrup mix.
3
Press into a greased 9x13 pan, cover and chill. Cut into bars of desired size. I wrap mine individually so they are easy to grab and go. They freeze very well.

Great, I love using Nature's Harvest brand sunflower kernels (roasted & lightly salted) in these kinds of recipes.
Almonds are great tooooo.
Thanks for answering so quick.

oops, no the second one is 1/4 cup sesame seeds. I also used some toasted almonds in this picture, as I was out of sunflower seeds.

Do you really add the 1/4 c toasted sunflower seeds twice...or should it be added in just once.
