I FOUND THE RECIPE!!!
OK... After DAYS of searching for the recipe I used to make these, I finally found it buried under a pile of papers. I guess I should clean up, huh! So here it is:
2 c. oats
3/4 c. wheat germ
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. sunflower seeds (I used 3/4 c. & I thought it was too much)
8 oz. raisins or craisins
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
4 Tbs. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Mix sugar, honey, butter, vanilla, & salt. Melt in microwave for about 2 minutes & stir well.
Mix melted items & remaining dry ingredients in large bowl & stir well. Keep stirring! It may seem dry, but it WILL get sticky if you keep going..... :)
Line casserole dish with large piece of waxed paper.
Dump mixture in casserole dish & spread. Fold wax paper over top, OR add a new piece on top. Using hands, press hard to flatten & compact mixture.
Let cool completely!
Lift granola bars out of dish with waxed paper & cut into bars or squares. (Or, if you didn't use waxed paper, just cut in the dish & remove.)
Store in air tight container or wrap individually in plastic wrap.
How easy is that!?!?
