Chewy Granola Bars
2 cups vegan rice crispies
2 cups dry oatmeal
1 cup cranberries, raisins, or any other chopped dehydrated fruit
1/2 cup hulled unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 cup light vegan corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon margarine
Get a large bowl and add the rice crispies, oatmeal, choice of dried fruit, sunflower seeds, and almonds. Mix them together and pull the pieces of fruit apart if they stick together. Grease a deep dish pan (around 9x15x2) with some margarine.
Next, in a medium large pot, add 1 cup light corn syrup and heat until it starts to boil, then add the vegan sugar. Turn down the heat, add margarine, and stir until vegan sugar is dissolved.
Remove pot from stove and add the dry ingredients. Mix with large spoon until all of the dry stuff is mixed in with the corn syrup/vegan sugar. Add this to the greased pan, spread it out evenly, then place a sheet of wax paper over it and press it down or roll it out flat with a jar or can. Remove wax paper and let sit for 1 hour.
