Homemade Cliff Bars

Submitted by: EMILYSEGAL


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 and 1/4 cups crisp rice cereal (e.g., I like Erwhon Crisp Brown, but Rice Krispies are fine)
    1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
    2 tablespoons ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
    1/4 cup chocolate chips
    1/4 cup finely chopped nuts or seeds (pepitas are great)
    1/3 cup brown rice syrup or agave
    1/2 cup nut or seed butter of your choice (e.g., peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Optional: 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Combine the rice cereal, oats, flaxseed meal, dried fruit, and nuts in a large bowl.

Combine the syrup and nut butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until melted and well-blended (alternatively microwave in small microwave-safe bowl 30-60 seconds until melted). Stir in vanilla until blended.

Pour nut butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until coated (use a wooden spoon at first, then get your hands in it. It will be sticky, but this way you can really coat everything. Just scrape off your hands when you're done). Press mixture firmly into an 8-inch square pan (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray) using a large square of wax paper (really tamp it down). Cool in pan on a wire rack and chill at least 30 minutes to help it set. Cut into 12 bars. (Wrap bars tightly in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator).
