Weddings are always a fabulous affair to attend as a guest – it’s a great excuse to wear a traditional sari and look glam and to socialize with friends and families. We are heading to Durban on Friday to attend a family wedding over the weekend. I am especially looking forward to spending some time just chilling with my sister, Dawn and her family. I usually try to bake some of her favorite goodies when visiting her in Durban and she asked for these snack bars – which are full of healthy ingredients including peanut butter – these cookies are delish and very moreish.
Combine the oats, rice crispies, Weet-Bix, coconut and dried fruit in a large bowl.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan and stir constantly over low heat until the butter and sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
Stir the syrupy mixture in the dry ingredients. Press evenly and firmly into a greased pan measuring 26cm x 20cm. Refrigerate until set before cutting into bars. May be drizzled with chocolate if desired.
