Granola Bars

I know I know.  It’s been too long since I’ve posted any recipes here.  Here’s one that I tried out yesterday.  These make a great healthy (sorta, they taste almost like a dessert) snack when you’re on the go!  They are also rather versatile, so you can add all kinds of different things to them if you’d like!

Granola bars

2 C. Rolled oats
¾ C. Flour
2/3 C. Brown sugar
½ C  Wheat germ
½ C. Flax seed meal (The recipe didn’t call for this, but I found it on sale for cheap and decided to add it.)
3/4 C. Crispy rice...(recipe didn’t call for this, but found them for cheap and added! Yum!)
¾ tsp cinnamon
¾ tsp salt
¾ C raisins, or some mini choc chips, or dried fruit

½ C. honey
1 beaten egg
½ vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla

I also added some protein powder, but not a lot since that stuff is expensive and make things taste really weird. :-}

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Generously grease a 9x13 baking pan
2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except last 4.  
3. Make a well in the center of the mixture; add the rest of the ingredients.  
Mix with your hands, and pat into the 13x9 pan.  
4. Bake for 30-35 min, or until golden brown in the edges.  Be sure to cut them several minutes after taking them out of the oven, or they will harden and you will be unable to cut through them!
