1 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup oat bran
1 1/2 cup brown rice cereal
1 cup dried cranberries
3 tblspn finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup natural cane sugar
1 tspn pure vanilla extract

Grease baking pan with the coconut oil.

Mix the oats, walnuts, oat bran, cereal, cranberries, and ginger in a large bowl and set. Heat rice syrup, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring continuously as it comes to a boil and thickens (for about 4 minutes). Pour over the moat mixture and stir until even.

Spread into the greased pan and cool to room temperature before cutting into bars.

    If you use someone else’s recipe, you should source it. Just because you sourced the recipe in your blog post doesn’t mean it’s now yours and you can post it elsewhere on your site as though it’s your recipe.
