I concocted these a few years ago and they are the perfect treat for a camping excursion. One of my favorite camping recipes for snack time, these bars are chock full of good stuff – whole grain cereal, almonds, cranberries, oats and more. Cook up a batch before you leave, let is sit overnight and watch your campers gobble it down.
