Every time I make this recipe, I think how much we enjoy this oldie but goodie and need to reshare it!

* My mother used to make these bars when I was growing up. I make it now for my kids. I always double the recipe and put it on an entire sheet pan, then cut them into bars and freeze them. They taste even better frozen!

* I use Craisins for the dried fruit, ½ cup of brown sugar instead of ¾ cup, and natural peanut butter for the nut butter. I also sub 100 percent silan for the maple syrup.
