    25 minutes

    These bars have a great mix of different seeds but it is the addition of marshmallow that makes them really special. Great with kids.

    Serves: 24 

    • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
    • 1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
    • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
    • 1/3 cup chopped almonds
    • 1/3 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
    • 3 1/2 cups rice bubbles
    • 1 cup dried cranberries
    • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    • 7 cups miniature marshmallows (mallow bakes)

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a large frypan over medium heat stir together the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pecans and almonds. Cook until the sesame seeds are starting to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Add coconut and stir until sesame seeds are golden. Watch carefully as they burn easily. Stir in the cranberries and rice bubbles and remove from heat.
    2. In a large saucepan, combine the peanut butter, butter and marshmallows. Cook and stir over low heat until marshmallows are melted. Pour in the seed and nut mixture and stir until evenly coated. Press lightly into a greased 20x30cm baking dish. Let stand until cool, then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container, or wrap individually in plastic wrap.

    These were great! It's a pretty foolproof recipe. I subbed in extra and different types of seeds and nuts and it was awesome. Thanks for the recipe.  -  19 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were soooo---good. I made them for Christmas. The only change made was that I used no sesame seeds and double the sunflower seed.  -  04 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
