Chewy Tropical Granola Bars from Rachael Ray – 12 bars

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 cups granola
  • 1 cup rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried banana slices
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple
  • 1/2 cup toasted sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped roasted salted macadamia nuts
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1/3 cup corn syrup, 4 tablespoons unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon grated orange peel to a boil, stirring, over medium-high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Stir in 2 cups granola, 1 cup rice cereal, 1/2 cup chopped dried banana slices, 1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple, 1/3 cup toasted sweetened shredded coconut and 1/3 cup chopped roasted salted macadamia nuts. Transfer to a greased 9-by-11-inch baking dish and press into an even layer. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Cut into 12 bars.
