Oatmeal Raisin Granola Bars


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!?!?

Oh my gosh, you made these? They're beautiful! Can't wait for you to find the recipe so I can give them a try. I am addicted to my husband's no bake cookies, but a no bake granola bar would be much better for me!
