Homemade Granola Bars

(These are great for kids with allergies.) My kids loved them, enough that I will have to make a double batch next time I make them! They are a super quick snack too! My kids love granola bars, but I don't love all the sugar that are in the regular ones, this is a great alternative! Thanks to {Becca @ Make Your Taste Buds Dance} for sharing the recipe!
Over medium-high heat, stir these ingredients:
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar

Bring to a boil and stir 2 minutes (err on the side of overcooking; the end product will not hold its shape if not allowed to boil for a good 2 minutes)

Add the following:
1 3/4 quick-cooking oatmeal
1 3/4 rice cereal (Rice Krispies or Rice Chex work great; you could also substitute Corn Chex or whatever cereal your kiddos favor)

Dump into a well-greased half-size cookie sheet. Spread but don't press down. Add raisins, marshmallows, or additional goodies. Gently press down. Cut at room temperature.
