  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups crunchy peanut butter

  1. In a large fry pan over medium-high heat. toast the sesame seeds and sunflower seeds until they smell nutty and delicious. Remove from heat. Set aside until cool.

  2. Prepare a a 13 x 9 baking pan with a very thin coating of cooking spray. Use a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the oats, Rice Krispies and the mixture from the blender.

  5. In a medium MICROWAVE-SAFE bowl,mix together the honey, sugar and peanut butter. Microwave on high until just hot and bubbly - stirring once after 20 seconds.

  6. Add powdered milk, vanilla and almond extract to microwave mixture and stir to combine.

  7. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients in the bowl. Mix the ingredients together.

  8. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  9. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Cover and place in refrigerator to cool.
