|1 cup||Oats (rolled)|
|3 cups||Cornflakes, crushed|
|1 cup||Coconut (desiccated)|
|1½ cup||Fruit, dried (mixed)|
|3½ teaspoon||Full-cream milk powder|
|½ cup||Brown sugar, packed|
|½ cup||Peanut butter|
Mix the oats, cornflakes, coconut, dried fruit and milk powder together in a big bowl.
Simmer butter, sugar, honey and peanut butter together for 3 minutes, or microwave on high for 4 minutes (from cold), stirring every minute. Pour sauce into dry mixture and mix well.

* Delicious and nourishing bars for hiking or home are ideal to use as trail bars, being both filling and full of energy, but are also perfect as snacks at home or work.
* The bars are best kept in the refrigerator, although it's by no means essential. They soften in the heat but don't disintegrate.
* Any other cereal crumbs can be combined with cornflakes to make up the 3 cups. It's a good way to use up those otherwise annoying scraps. If too much powdery stuff goes in, the bars can be somewhat dense. Using Rice Bubbles (Rice Krispies) gives a lighter texture.
* Desiccated coconut is best, as shredded coconut is too course.
