Followed the directions of the recipe and her posted comment. The oats was the base, I then added puffed rice cereal, choc chips, dried cherries, some mini marshmallows, and almond slivers. I made a double batch and baked it in a greased jelly roll pan. Yes pressing the ingredients into the pan is a sticky mess, but my son loved helping. You could either use foil, parchment, rubber spatula, oiled or buttered hands, then press down the mixture evenly into the pan. I baked it for 20 mins at 350'F. They were a bit difficult to remove from the pan. So next time i'll line it with sprayed parchment or foil, or a silpat. They were very chewy and a little difficult to cut even after 20 mins of sitting. I like mine a little crispier so next time I will do even longer, 25-30 mins- until the center starts to look slightly browned too. Overall a GREAT recipe. Thanks Aliceyn for a great, versatile, quick & easy recipe. A definite keeper. Update: the bars were even better over the next few days. Not as gooey after they sat overnight. YUM. My 2 yr old loves them. ***Update: I have made this 2 other times now; as the single recipe & again as a dbl recipe. The recipe as is works out great. The dbl recipe I put in about 1/3 C. more cereal b/c the bars the first time I made the dbl batch were very wet after baking & sitting 5 mins. Also, I've been making them in the evening, covering them w/ foil & a towel & let sit til morning, then remove from the pan and cut them; perfect & easier to cut.
