  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place shredded coconut evenly onto baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until browned. Remove.
  • Place coconut, oats, graham crackers, cereal and marshmallow bits into large bowl.
  • In a medium saucepan melt butter and honey, stirring until melted. Remove and stir in brown sugar, peanut butter and vanilla. Pour mixture over oat mixture stirring to combine.
