This recipe comes to us from our friend Cheryl outside Boulder Colorado, who got it from a zip line trip she took which criss crossed the Animas River in Colorado with zip lines.  A full adrenaline filled day which required refueling with these bars.  We've made them and can attest to their caloric content.  Be sure you have a busy day planned before consuming one of these puppies. 
Don't add the sugar if the cranberries have been treated with a sweetener, such as honey, when they were dried.

This receipe comes from my friend, Beth many, many, years ago.
It's also good with sliced bananas if you have any that are going bad.--put them on
before the topping. I make this so much that I have the receipe memorized(which is amazing
with my bad memory). It's so fast to put together when you get company at the last minute.
