    In a saucepan over medium heat, stir or whisk together the agave nectar, peanut butter, brown sugar, the 2 Tbs. butter and the salt until the mixture is smooth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Immediately pour the hot peanut-butter mixture over the cereal mixture in the bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir until the cereal, cranberries, and nuts are evenly coated and distributed.

    Line an 8-inch (20-cm) square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of overhang on 2 opposite edges to use later as a handle. Grease the foil with the 1 tsp. butter. Spread the combined mixture evenly over the tin foil lined and buttered baking pan.

    With lightly buttered hands, press the mixture firmly and evenly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Then lift out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Use a sharp buttered knife to cut into small bars. Then transfer the bars back into the pan and put in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Take them out and store the bars in the refrigerator in an airtight container, with sheets of waxed paper between the layers (or use cute printed out stickers like we did!), for up to 1 week. Enjoy! :)
