Directions

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 2 In a large bowl stir together the peanut butter, the melted butter, the brown sugar, the honey or syrup and the vanilla and almond extracts until smooth. 3 Add all the other ingredients. Stir well. 4 Press the mixture into 13 x 9 inch greased pan and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or just until they lightly browned around the edges. 5 While still warm score bars, but let cool completely on wire rack before removing bars to a serving platter or storage container. 6 Store any leftover bar in the refrigerator as they keep best that way. 7 Recipe Note: You can individually wrap each bar for a quick on-the-go healthy breakfast bar. You can freeze them for long-term storage that way too. 8 Charlotte Hunt was kind enough to use a online program to approximate the nutritional values of the way I made my recipe--remember that is just approximation...
