  • 2 1/2 cups (625 ml) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) liquid honey
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) brown sugar
  • 1 tsp (6 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup (250 ml) mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dried banana chips
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) dried cranberries or raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C).

  2. Spread oats onto a baking sheets and toast for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a pot, combine honey, butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Warm, stirring over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture is hot. Stir in toasted oats, marshmallows*, banana chips, and cranberries until well combined. 

  4. Transfer to a lined with parchment paper and then greased 8 in. (1.5 L)  baking pan and press firmly down. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Cut into squares to serve. 

Recipe Notes

* I'd recommend letting the mixture in the pot cool slightly before adding the marshmallows in as they will melt if the pot is too warm.
