1 c. creamy peanut butter
½ c. packed brown sugar
½ c. corn syrup
1/3 c. butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/3 c. rolled oats
½ c. flaked coconut
½ c. sunflower seeds
¾ c. raisins
½ c. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit

In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, the butter or margarine, the brown sugar, the syrup and the vanilla until smooth.

Add all the other ingredients. Stir well.

Press the mixture into 13 x 9 inch greased pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool on wire rack before cutting into bars.

These will keep up to two weeks, tightly sealed, but I'm betting they won't be around your house that long!
