There's sweetness from the honey, chewiness from the raisins, hints of chocolate and cinnamon, and a bit of crunch. To save a few for later, wrap individual bars and place in a resealable freezer container. When you want a satisfying treat on short notice, just grab one and let it thaw for a few minutes. —Tasha Lehman, Williston, Vermont

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups unsweetened puffed wheat cereal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. In a small bowl, combine honey, butter and vanilla; pour over oat mixture and mix well. (Mixture will be sticky.)
  2. Press into a 13x9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake until set and edges are lightly browned, 14-18 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
