Donna's notes for this recipe:
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!

Directions

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.

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

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.
