Granola Bars

1 1/2 cups rice krispies
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 cups cashews chopped
1 cup dried banana chips chopped or
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 cup syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C
Grease a baking dish with the butter and set aside.
Spread the almonds and cashews on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for about 6-8 minutes, or until they start to brown a bit.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Mix the oats, rice krispies, banana chips or raisins and sesame seeds in a big bowl.
Add the nuts once they’ve cooled.
In a small saucepan, combine syrup, honey, salt and vanilla essence over medium heat stirring all the time to prevent burning.
Continue cooking for additional 3 to 5 minutes until the syrup begins to thicken, then pour it over the oats and nuts.
Mix everything together so that the syrup evenly coats everything in the bowl.
Pour into your baking sheet while it’s still warm.
Press flat with a back of a spoon.
Let cool to room temperature or refrigerate until ready.
Cut them into square or rectangles.

These can be dipped in chocolate or drizzled with chocolate on the top.
