Granola Bars


I found this recipe for granola bars and made them yesterday and let me just say, "YUMMO"! Every recipe I've ever tried is either too dry and falls apart or the children won't eat them.

These were so delicious that I thought I'd share them with you.

Chewy Granola Bars

Mix together:
1 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. peanut butter (We have a severe peanut allergy here so I used soynut butter)
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. melted butter
2 t. vanilla

Then add:
3 c. oats
1/2 c. coconut
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. raisins
1/3 c. wheat germ
2 t. sesame seeds
1 c. chocolate chips

I omitted the raisins, wheat germ and sesame seeds. I would imagine you could add any combination of seeds and nuts and dried fruit you wish. Stir in well. Then press into a greased sheet pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350.

Cut while still warm, then let cool before serving.
