Homemade Granola Bars
HOME MADE GRANOLA BARS
2 cups rolled outs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (I used 1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon of splenda brown sugar)
1/2 cup of wheat germ (I bought bulk at the Bulk Barn)
3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of flour
3/4 cup of raisins (I used a trail mix that I picked up from Costco, but hell toss in any nuts or dried fruit, it will taste just as good)
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cups of honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup of oil (to me that was a lot so I used a 1/4 cup of oil and a 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce)
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously grease a 9"X13" pan
2. In large bowl mix all dry ingredients well. Once mixed make a well in the centre of the mixture and add all other ingredients and mix again!
3. Place in pan press firmly and evenly. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cold slightly and cut. Don't allow bars to cool completely before cutting, or they will be to hard to cut.
Makes 24 pieces and is 4 points on WW new program.
Hope you enjoy!
