Delicious and Nutricious – Chewy Granola Bars

Filed under: In the Kitchen — candid reflections @ 8:35 am

Before you head off on an adventurous outing this President’s Day weekend, you’re going to want to make a batch of these.  Once you’ve tried them, store bought granola bars will no longer satisfy!

Chewy Granola Bars

1 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup melted butter

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups oats

1/2 cup coconut

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 raisins

1/3 cup wheat germ (I use oat bran)

2 teaspoons sesame seeds

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix first five ingredients in a large bowl.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Press into greased jelly roll pan (Texas sheet pan.)  Bake for 20 minutes at 350°.  Cut while still warm.

Have fun whatever you choose to do!  I’m headed out to give the horse a pedicure, better known as: pick out and possibly file his hooves.

  3. Hey Michelle. Your blog is beautiful. Isn’t it fun? I have one for our sweet baby Jude, but I started one of my own as well (judesmom.wordpress). Sounds like for similar reasons you started yours – my writing has gone to the wayside! Though since I post so often on our family blog, I rarely remember (rather, rarely have time) to post on my own. I will, yes, I will write more…now that I’ve been inspired once more to do so by visiting your small slice of internet space.

    Love your photography!
