Homemade Cliff Bars

It is the first Monday of the month which means it’s Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day!  I love this day.  It is so much fun to share what I made from someone else’s blog, and see what someone made from mine.  This month I was assigned This Chick Cooks.  And boy does she cook!  Katie is all about healthy living with a few treats along the way.  She has so many healthy, yummy treats on her site.  Whole Grain Brownies anyone?  How about Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips

I had a hard time picking what to make!  In the end I had to go with something I could make with what I had in the house.  We are moving on Friday, so I had to use up some stuff in my pantry rather than buy anything new.  These Cliff Bars looked perfect!  I could add a few extra things of my own to use up what I had, and my 6 year old would love them!

 
Homemade Cliff Bars

1 1/4 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3 Tbls ground flax seed (or you can just substitute oats –this is what I did)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup marshmallows
¼ cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup honey, maple syrup or light molasses (I used honey)
2 Tbls brown sugar
1/3 cup nut butter (I always use peanut butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze
Chocolate Chips (1/2 cup for full 8 in pan – less if you just want a drizzle), melted

Combine the syrup and peanut butter in a small pan over medium heat, stirring until melted and well-blended.  Stir in vanilla.

Pour mixture over cereal, stir until coated.  You may need to use your hands to get it blended well.  Press mixture firmly into an 8-inch square pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray. 

Pour melted chocolate over the top (or drizzle if that is your thing).  Cool in pan on a wire rack and chill at least 30 minutes to help it set. Cut into approximately 12 bars.  Store in refrigerator.

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to try it. :)

Mmm, these look wonderfully crunchy yet chocolatey. I'd love these! And they don't even look all that bad for you :)

These look so good Erin. Healthy and yummy is a wonderful combo. I am so excited for you about the move. Can't wait to hear all about it.

These look great, and healthy, too! Sounds like a winner to me!

Yum! Those look absolutely fantastic. I like the idea of the oats (especially since I never have flax seed in the house). I'll have to go check out the chick now. :)

Looks wonderful and I'll bet that my 6 year old would love these too.

If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC recipe this month: Pork Belly Soup with Collard Greens.

TOTALLY making these for my husband...he's always asking me to make granola bar type things and I haven't done it yet, this is the perfect recipe for it!

So cool - would love to try making my own clif bars as my boyfriend loves those things! :)

LOVE this. I used to eat Clif bars all the time and this just reminded me that I rarely buy them anymore. This version sounds really good (and much more economical!)

Cool! Definitely going to have to give these a try. We eat a lot of Clif bars around here so it's neat to see a recipe to make them at home and save the expense. Thanks Erin!

Erin- your take on the clif bars looks fantastic. I could definitely go for a few of those. Kudos to you for doing a SRC post when you are just getting ready to move! You've got a really nice blog. :)

Delicious! I particularly like that they have flax seeds...and most likely taste like a candy bar!

I have to admit I have never heard of Clif Bars. And that's a shame. Cause they look like they are tasty.

I've seen a couple recipes for homemade Clif Bars and they always look so good. Yours are no exception!

What a great pick for SRC! These could easily be made into various different flavor versions.
