Make It Yourself - Granola Bars



My husband says these beat the bought ones hands down!

1/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup honey
2 T hot water
2 tsp vanilla
Mix until well blended.
2 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sunflower seeds or nuts
1 T sesame seeds
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins or other finely chopped dried fruit
1/2 cup coconut (optional)
Stir together with above ingredients. Press mixture into greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 24 bars while still warm. Cool completely before removing from pan.
Variations are endless. Try mini M&Ms, Reeses Pieces, craisins, white chocolate chips, Rice Krispies, etc.
