      1/2  cup           Light corn syrup
      1/2  cup           Vegetable margarine
      2/3  cup           Peanut butter
    2      teaspoons     Vanilla extract
      1/2  cup           Sunflower seed
    3      cups          Quick oats*
      1/2  cup           Coconut -- grated
      1/3  cup           Wheat germ
      1/2  cup           Raisins
    1      cup           Carob chips

 *You may substitute 1-1/2 c crisped rice for 1-1/2 c of the oats. 
    Preheat the oven  to 350 degrees F. Coat the inside of a glass 9x12
 baking dish with light vegetable oil. In a large bowl, combine the
 sugar, corn syrup, vegetable margarine, peanut butter and vanilla
 extract, and stir well to the consistency of a paste. Stir in
 remaining ingredients and work the mixture so  that several large
 clumps  adhere together. Using your fingers, press the mixture into
 the baking  dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the
 preparation turns golden brown. Allow to cool completely before
 cutting into bars.
