  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 2/3 cup almonds sliced
  • 5 oz cherries dried


  • Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, honey and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently.
  • Bring sugar mixture just to a boil and then continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes stirring constantly, or until sugar dissolves.
  • Stir in oats and crispy rice cereal until evenly coated.
  • Let mixture cool for 5 minutes.
  • Place parchment paper in an 8x8 inch baking dish. Make sure the paper hangs over on either side so you can pull out the granola bars and cut them up with ease.
  • Once mixture has cooled slightly, fold in almonds and cherries and press into the prepared dish.
  • Place dish into refrigerator and let bars set up for 1-2 hours.
  • Cut into bars and serve!
