No Bake Granola Bars

I combined several recipes and did a lot of tweaking to get this one to where I love it.  It fills my 12 x 17 pan perfectly.  The bars can be served immediately, but they will be crumbly until they cool completely.

No Bake Granola Bars

Spray a big cookie sheet with pan spray. In a big bowl, combine:

5 c. oatmeal
6 c. Rice Krispies (or 4 c. Rice Krispies and 2 c. other cereal)
1 c. raisins
½ c. coconut

In microwave safe bowl, combine:

1 c. peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. corn syrup

Microwave on high 2 min. and stir. Microwave about 2 more min. just until sugar dissolves and it is bubbling.

Add 1 tsp. of vanilla, stir. Pour peanut butter mixture over oatmeal mixture. Combine with a big spoon. Add 1 c. chocolate chips. Stir quickly and spread onto cookie sheet. Wet hands with cold water and press mixture into cookie sheet. Cut while still warm into about 44 bars. Store in air-tight container. (Note: my microwave is 1100 watts.  You may need to adjust cooking time in yours.)
