Chewy Granola Bars

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well (it’s easiest to just use your hands). Pat the mixture out into the foil-lined pan.

 
Bake for about 15-20 minutes if you want chewy granola bars or for 20-25 minutes for crunchy granola bars. When the edges start to brown, remove from the oven and let cool for a couple of minutes. Use a pizza roller to slice into bars. Finish cooling completely before removing from the pan or they will break apart.

 
Note: You can substitute dried fruits, chopped nuts or peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips or coconut.
