Make these cereal bars just the way you like them

You can make these tasty snacks in whatever way suits you best. Add your favorite ingredients and mix together seeds, nuts, and dried fruit – just make sure the banana-to-dry-ingredient ratio follows the recipe.

These crunchy bars contain oatmeal, flaxseed, and various nuts. They last a long time, so you can make a big batch all at once. They can also be frozen, so you can keep them even longer.
