Ingredients
1.5 cup chopped assorted raw or toasted nuts and/or seeds
1/3 cup chopped unsweetened cereal (I used Cheerios)
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit
1/3 cup light corn syrup (or brown rice syrup)
1/16 tsp salt (optional)
Directions
Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line an 8 inch square baking pan (or 7”x 11” glass baking dish) with parchment paper. Spray the parchment with non stick cooking spray to prevent the bars from sticking.
Mix the nuts, cereal, and dried fruit together in a bowl. Add the corn syrup and add a pinch of salt. Stir and mix well. Press into the baking pan using a wooden spoon or additional piece of parchment paper.
Place in the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes until lightly browned on the edges. Let cool for 20 minutes and slice into bars.
 Store at room temperature for three days, in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, or freeze them.
