Directions:
Lightly grease a 9x9-inch square pan. In a very large bowl, stir together the cereal, oats, wheat bran and chocolate chips. In a small saucepan combine the brown sugar and honey or syrup and bring just to a boil over medium heat. Turn off the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth. Quickly pour over the cereal mixture and stir well with a big spoon, making sure to coat every bit. Pour into the prepared pan and press down with the back of a spoon (or your fingers) to evenly distribute. Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
