Take a Hike! Memorial Day is set aside each year to commemorate the U.S. men and women who died while serving in our military. In addition to remembrance, Memorial Day is also used as a weekend that many return to the great outdoors. So this weekend, pack up your family and some reflux-friendly treats and welcome in the summer season with a hike!
- Cooking spray to coat the pan
- Parchment paper
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or rice syrup
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup melted butter (I used canola spread)
- 2 cups rice cereal or oatmeal
- 1/4 cup coconut (toasting enhances the flavor but is optional)
- 1/3 cup dried fruit
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bread pan with cooking spray, then line with parchment paper. Lightly spray the top of the parchment paper. In a bowl, fold together the remaining ingredients. Using a spatula, place the mixture on top of the parchment paper and carefully spread across the pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool for one hour before cutting into bars.
