Amy's Amazing Energy Bars

I love this recipe. It is so perfect for a snack or dessert. Hubby, kids and all enjoy this protein packed treat. Plus it takes seconds to put together. Thank you, Amy!

1 cup brown rice cereal
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/ 2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup raw honey
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

*I also sprinkled my new favorite seed in the mixture, Chia seeds.

Spray a 9x13 pan. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips, honey and peanut butter. In a sauce pan, cook the peanut butter and honey over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Pour over cereal mixture. Add chocolate chips. Stir until everything is coated with the honey/peanut butter mixture. Pour and press into the 9x13 pan. Cool and slice into bars.
