"I adapted a few granola bars to fit my needs as a short-on-cash college kid. They're easy to adapt to what you have in your pantry and perfect to store individually for a healthy grab-and-go snack! Using dried cherries gives the bars a tarty edge! I recommend cutting bars and storing in refrigerator wrapped individually for grab-and-go snacking." — brittlynnr

1 1/2 cups
chopped dried mixed fruit
crispy rice cereal
instant coffee granules, or more to taste
Super yummy. I stuck with the recipe. I couldn't resist having a bite when these were right out of the oven! I'm a graduate student, so I needed something for marathon library days. I used semi-sweet chocolate morsels. I don't keep instant coffee, but I do have Kona beans and a flavored bean that I like. I mixed them up keeping the Kona grounds as the base so the flavored grounds didn't have too much punch. For the dried mixed fruit, I got an anti-oxidant blend. The flavors all work really well together. I was worried that the honey and brown sugar would be too sweet, but with unsweetened apple sauce it is perfect.
Thanks for sharing So-Cal Girl! These fit the ticket! Great, well rounded bar. I made these just as you wrote except for almond flour(didn't have any, substituted WW) and they were delicious and filling! I might use this as a base and try adding peanut butter.
