chewy granola bars

I found a fabulous recipe for chewy granola bars via Tastespotting. They are peanut-buttery, moist and full o' fiber. Find the recipe here.

*I made a few substitutions and additions to the recipe based on what I had on hand. I used an unsweetened cereal, ground flax instead of wheat germ(I didn't toast it with the cereal and oats like the recipe calls for in order to preserve the omega fatty acids and also replaced some of the cereal with it to increase the amount added to 1/2 cup) and pumpkin seeds instead of peanuts. Use what you have on hand and they'll still turn out fabulous.
