need a recipe for honey oat bars

My oldest daughter told me yesterday that she's getting hungry before lunch. I usually send her with a granola bar, nuts and fruit for a snack, I just pack it in her back pack, but I didn't have the extra money for a box of bars last week, so she's been going with just a bag of fruit and nuts. Obviously that bar was a big filler for her.
So, I'm thinking I can make a batch until I can buy a box. But, it has to be like those nature valley honey oat bars, the crunchy ones. Those are the ones she really likes.
Does anyone have a good recipe for one? I wouldn't mind recipes for other kinds, with fruit and nuts, but if you have one like that, I would appreciate it!
