Homemade Granola Bar Recipe

My children and I love these. They do not last a day around here no matter how many I make. I love them because they're chewy but not hard.

2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal ( I use an organic kind)
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup raisins ( we don't put these in)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup peanut butter ( I use the all natural kind)
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl combine cereal and oats and raisins and set aside.
In small saucepan, combine brown sugar and corn syrup.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly
Stir in peanut butter and vanilla blend until smooth
Pour over cereal mixture, mix well
Press into ungreased 13 by 9 inch pan
Cool cut into 24 bars.

We have put chocolate chips in them and peanut butter chips. We've also used micro sized marshmallows.
