Blue Ribbon Granola Bars


Blue Ribbon Granola Bars

Okay, so they don't give out ribbons for granola bars, but if they did, these would win.

These granola bars are yummy, natural, inexpensive, and easy to make-- a winner all around!  I make a batch of these about once a week, and my husband takes them to work in his lunch and the girls and I snack on them.  When my mother comes to watch the kids for a while, she sneaks a few bites.  They're not too sweet, but are sweet enough to taste like a treat.  Also, there's lots of room for customization, depending on the kind of chunky thing you like!

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 9"x13" baking pan.

Combine dry ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons flax seed (optional)
1 cup 'chunky' ingredients (I usually use raisins, dried cranberries, or cinnamon chips. Consider chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, or other dried fruit)

Add wet ingredients:
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup oil (I use canola.  Consider coconut.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir together until mixed.  If mixture seems obviously dry, add a touch more oil.  Dump mixture into baking pan.  Use hands to mash flat and even into pan.  Bake for 23-25 minutes.  Allow to cool for approximately 15-20 minutes, then, using a pizza cutter, cut into desired size.  Do not allow to cool completely, or they will be more difficult to cut cleanly.  Store in an airtight container on counter for 7-10 days.
