Puffed Millet and Rice Bars

1- 6oz bag of puffed millet cereal
1- 6oz bag of puffed brown rice cereal
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
1- 21oz jar of brown rice syrup
2 tbsp of molasses
1/2 cup of honey
1 tsp vanilla

Cook brown rice syrup, honey, and molasses at a soft boil for approximately 8-10 minutes.  In a large bowl combine puffed cereal and seeds.  Remove syrup mixture from heat and add vanilla, pour over seed and cereal mixture a little at a time, stirring well in between.  On two, raised edge cookie sheets spread mixture into thin, even layer.  Wet hands before spreading to keep from sticking to the snack mix.  Bake in a 225 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until nuts look slightly toasted and snack bars begin to get crispy.  Allow to cool for easy cutting and bars to set and get crispy.  Store in a air tight container and enjoy!  Makes approximately 40 snack bars when cut.
