Homemade Granola Bars

[Via – Wit and Whistle]

These granola bars have whole wheat flour, wheat germ, and rolled oats. You can throw in any kind of dried fruit or nuts. Of course I had to put chocolate chips in mine!

2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey 1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch pan.

In a large bowl mix oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon, flour, chocolate chips, nuts, cranberries and salt. Make an indention in the center of the mixture, and pour in the honey, egg, oil and vanilla. Mix well. (Using your hands makes it easier to get everything coated.)

Press the mixture into the pan. Don’t spread the mixture all the way to one edge of the pan (see photo). This makes it easier to scoop out the finished bars. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Cool for 5 minutes, cut the bars while they are still warm, and store the granola bars in an airtight container so they won’t dry out.

Edit: Oh my gosh, these are even yummier the next day. They are so moist!  I can’t stop eating them!
