Whenever my children accompany me to the supermarket, they beg me to buy the latest cereal bars they see on the shelves. At $4 a box, I found them pretty pricey, considering that they were usually eaten before they could even be put away in the pantry. So I made my own. Now, the kids are happy and I’m happy too.

Make the Bars
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a jelly roll baking pan (a 9- x 13-inch baking pan will also work) with Gefen Parchment Paper.
In a saucepan, heat brown sugar and margarine over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Pour mixture into prepared jelly roll baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture in pan until even.
Bake 16–18 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and firm. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
