Homemade Granola Bars

Recipe From: Joyful Abode Website
Blake and I are obsessed with granola bars lately. Here is my attempt at copying Nature Valley's Dark Chocolate & Nut Chewy Granola Bars. I modified this from a billion websites, but mostly A Joyful Abode.
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup rice krispies
1/2 cup almonds (or walnuts)
1/2 cup golden raisins (or craisins)
2 TBSP chocolate chunks (or white chocolate)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup splenda
1/2 cup honey
4 tbsp butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Mix together 1st four ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Combine sugar, salt & wet ingredients and simmer in a saucepan. Mix everything together and spread evenly into a 9x13 pan (wax paper spray with pam). Press down hard to set in. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. When cooled add chocolate chunks to the top and press in. Cool completely before cutting.
