I made these for my teenage swimmer sons to eat before practice. I pretty much followed the recipe except I used cranberries instead of cherries, added a little wheat germ, and subbed 1/3 cup agave for 1/2 of the sugar. I boiled the peanut butter mixture in a large stock pot until bubbly, then added powdered milk and returned to boiling, stirring constantly. Then removed from heat and stirred in flavorings. I added the cereal mixture 1/2 at a time to make stirring easier and with a bit of muscle I was able to mix it well. Smashed the bars in the pan really well. I cut them up and individually wrapped the bars. Hopefully the 325 calories will give them a much needed energy boost. They loved the taste. Next time I make them I think I will use up all the fruit and nuts that I bought and make a few batches of the fruit/nut mixture to have ready to make later. That way I won't have to dirty up the food processor and kitchen all over again.
