No Bake Granola Bars

No Bake Granola Bars
Source: LUCKYGIRL4444

1 1/2 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cups Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned Oats
1 1/2 cups General Mills Fiber One, Original
1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar, unpacked
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

I line a 13x9 pan with foil to make removal and cutting easy.

Mix oats, rice krispies, and fiber 1 ceral in a large mixing bowl.

Heat brown sugar and honey in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth. Add peanut butter and vanilla and stir until everything is combined. It will be a thick brown sauce. Don't let it boil. Remove from heat and pour over oat/cereal mix. Work quickly and stir to combine everything.

Press into baking pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top and press into bars slightly. Chill for about 30 minutes until solid. Cut into 18 bars. (I lifted them right out with the foil and cut them on a cutting board)

Very low points - here's the nutritional info 1 bar = 132 calories, 4.0 fat, 3.2 fiber (Servings: 18; Points: 2)

You can also add in chopped nuts, raisins, coconut, dried fruit - just adjust nutritional info and points.
