Wake Up Breakfast Bars

These are really yummy for an afternoon snack and somewhat healthy.

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
5 cups bran-flakes cereal or raisin bran
1 package (6 ounces) dried cranberries , raisins or other (optional)

1. Line a 9 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with foil; set aside. In a large saucepan, stir together brown sugar and honey. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in cereal and 1/2 cup cranberries until coated.
2. Pat mixture into prepared pan, pressing firmly. Press remaining cranberries on top. Cover and chill until set or up to 24 hours.
3. To serve, use foil to lift mixture from pan; cut into squares. Will keep in the refrigerator for three days.
