Crunchy Peanut Butter Chip Bars

These are REALLY good (even though they are NOT chocolate !!!!).  They don't have a strong peanut butter taste.  I like the crunch of the peanuts and the pumpkin seeds along with the combination of cranberries and raisins.  These are a firm bar and hold together nice.

These were adapted from Anne's Peanut Butter Granola Bars.

1 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
1 cup rice crispy cereal
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed
1/2 cup raw peanuts 
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/4 cup dried cranberries 
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
3/4 cup natural peanut butter 
1 mashed banana

Mix everything together in a bowl. 

Press into an 8x8 pan and store in fridge.  Each day these bars tend to get more flavorful.
