1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons rolled oats
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
Heaping 1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (4 ounces) nuts or sunflower seeds
3/4 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup (2 ounces) raisins
1/2 cup (2 ounces) dried cranberries
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon peanut butter (chunky is best)
1 1/8 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon raspberry jam
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking pan.
Note: You can substitute some of these ingredients to your liking. For example - I did not use raisins and added some chopped white chocolate that I had in my cupboard.
Remove from heat and cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, run a knife along the edges to loosen from the sides. Then invert the 9x13 pan onto a large platter or cookie sheet. Cut into bars with large knife.
