Blueberry Banana Peanut Butter Bars

Josh found this recipe in an issue of Backpacker Magazine and boy, am I glad he did! I love these suckers. Chewy, crunchy, fruity.....good in every way!

1/4 Cup honey
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup peanut butter
2 Cups of flake cereal (preferrably bran flakes or kashi flakes), crushed
1/2 Cup dried blueberries
1/2 Cup slivered almonds (or nut of choice)
1/2 Cup dried banana chips
1/3 Cup of white chocolate chips

Break the banana chips into small pieces and set aside. Heat the honey and brown sugar in a large skillet and simmer for 1 minute. Over cooking will make the bars brittle. Removed the pan from the heat and stir in the peanut butter. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Coat the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan with vegetable oil or PAM. Scoop the mixture into the pan and pack down evenly. Freeze for 30 minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to a cutting board. Allow to come to room temperature and cut into 9 bars.

Can keep in freezer for 3 months.
