This energy bar recipe is quick to make and easy to store. My husband and I put these homemade granola bars in our lunch, but they're also a nice portable breakfast or snack. —Sharon Rast, Show Low, Arizona
In a large bowl, combine the cereal, oats and wheat germ. In a small saucepan, combine the corn syrup, peanut butter and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat until peanut butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture; mix well.
Transfer to a greased 9-in. square pan. Gently press cereal mixture evenly into pan. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
