Granola Bars

***These are super yummy***

2 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup packed Brown Sugar

1/2 cup Wheat Germ

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup flour

3/4 cup extras (raisins, choco chips, PB chips, sunflower seeds, nut etc.)

3/4 teaspoon salt


1/2 cup honey

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease a 9 X 13 pan.

2. Mix the first group of ingredients together. Make a well in the center of the mixed ingredients and pour the rest of the ingredients in the well. Mix well using your hands. Press into 9 X 13 pan.

3. Bake about 25 min for chewy bars, 30-35 min for crunchy. Cool for 5 min and then cut.

*My notes*

*I didn't use all the oil it called for. If you want healthier bars you could play around with using Applesauce instead of oil. Or maybe Coconut Oil.

*The batter is super sticky! Use the back of a spoon that has been covered in butter to press into pan.

*If you want more flavor you can add Nutmeg.
