Do not forget the catalina started today on the post selects which will make them .25 cents a box!  For more info click here

Thanks to Terri for passing along this great info, Here is a recipe that printed out of the catalina printer with my Post Selects cereal purchase.   It will be yummy with the banana stuff but might also work with the other kinds.  Sounds simple!  I thought you might want to share it.

BANANA SNACK BARS

  • 1 – 15.5 oz package Post Selects Banana Nut Crunch cereal
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 6 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 13×9 baking pan with foil, with the ends extending over the sides of the pan; lightly grease the foil. In a large bowl, mix cereal and flour and set aside.  Mix honey and butter in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.  Pour over cereal mixture and mix until evenly coated. Press mixture firmly into prepared pan.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool.  Remove from pan using foil handles.  Cut into bars; makes 32 small bars.  Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
NOTE:  Light corn syrup can be substituted for the honey.

This is a post I did a few months back on how I make home made Granola Bars for my Family

Make your own Granola Bars
We like to make our own granola / cereal bars.

Start out with 8 cups of cerea,l I used Blueberry Morning.  Honey Bunches of Oats, or any Post Selects cereal works  great too.
Then add 1 cup coconut,
1/2 cup sun flower seed,
1/2 cup crasins.
(You can use what ever you like, nuts, berrys, dried fruit.)
Mix together in a large bowl

In a large sauce pan, add
1 stick butter ( 8 TBSP)
3/4 cup Light Karo Syrup
3/4 cup sugar

On Medium/High heat
Stir till well blended
Boil for only 2 minutes, take off heat and add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Pour over the top of your cereal nut mixture.  Stir well

Pour into a buttered 9×13 pan.  FIRMLY press into the bottom.  If you do not press it down enough, they will not stick together.

Let cool for 1 hour.  Then cut into bars, it makes 18 large bars.

Bag them, they stay fresh about a week.  Or you can Freeze them.
