Nuts and Fruits Energy Bars

12

filled with salty nutty crunchiness, little pops of crisp rice cereal, and just the right amount of chewy dried fruit and necessary dark chocolate.

12
1/2 c. roughly chopped dry roasted peanuts
1/2 c. roughly chopped dry roasted almonds
1/2 c. roughly chopped cashews
1/3 c. crispy rice cereal
1/4 c. chopped dried cherries
1/4 c. dried wild blueberries (I love the ones from Trader Joe's)
1/3 c. brown rice syrup (look for it in the organic section of your grocery store)
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 oz. chopped (about 1/4" size) good quality bittersweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao chocolate bar)
* Just a note before you start. Don't skip the rough chop of the nuts or the chop of the dried cherries. Chopping is necessary for getting the right consistency so the bars stay together. Just a rough chop...
