Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Golden Grahams* cereal
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped peanuts
  • 1 cup (250 mL) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350ºF. Crush cereal. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cereal, 3/4 cup oats, the baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir in 3/4 cup of the peanuts and 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips.
  • 2

  • 3
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For 24 bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Substitution: One cup chopped walnuts instead of the peanuts gives these satisfying bars a slightly different flavour.
  • Tip 2
    How-To: Place cereal in a plastic resealable food-storage bag or between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap; crush with a rolling pin. Or crush cereal in a blender or food processor.
