There's a new bar in town!

Melanie Bar.
The Ricky Bar is a classic I know but this Bar also has some serious taste and addiction. The MELANIE BAR was invented after a bad experience with a certain bar that costco caries that has moths in it. I guess that's what happens when you make organic stuff, or in this case 70% organic. Anyhow the Melanie Bar gets two thumbs up and does not come with moths.

1 Cup Butter
1.5 Cups Peanut Butter
1.5 TBSP Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Cup Corn Syrup
6 Cups Oats
1 Cup Coconut (toasted)
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds (toasted)
1 Cup Sesame Seeds (toasted)
2 Cups Chocolate Chips


In a skillet, toast coconut, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds and set aside to cool. In a very large mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. Add corn syrup an then mix in remaining ingredients. Press into greased (very large or two)12X18 inch cookie sheet. Bake in a 350F oven for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly and cut while still warm.
(You can substitute toasted almonds and 1tsp almond extract for the sunflower seeds and vanilla if you want to mix it up. Or swap the chocolate chips for raisins).
