Granola Bars

Last night Kathleen, one of my sweet roommates showed me this recipe for Granola Bars. It’s from a blog called Homemade Incredible. Check it out homemadeincredilbe.wordpress.com.

This recipe for Granola Bars looks awesome. I’m going to try it tomorrow and will let you know how they turn out. Granola Bars are a good breakfast on the go with a Banana (or any fruit) and make very healthy and delicious snacks. I have made granola before, but never bars so I’m excited to try this out.

Here is the recipe:

  • 3 c oats
  • 1/2 c wheat germ or ground flax seed
  • 3/4 c flour or ground oats
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c walnuts
  • 1/2 c dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c natural peanut or almond butter
  • 1 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 c honey

In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, wheat germ/flax, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, stir together remaining ingredients. Make a “well” in the center of the oat mixture; pour wet ingredients into well and stir together until just combined. Grease a large (13×9″) pan with butter and press mixture firmly into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool, then cut into bars. I recommend freezing half the batch!

Try it and let me know how you like it!
