Homemade Granola Bars

3 May

I’m on a mission to make most of our grains homemade (bread, pasta, english muffins, etc.) and granola bars are both inexpensive and taste so much better than what we buy at the stores.

Homemade Granola Bar Recipe
2 cups non-instant oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 egg (or 2 tbs powdered eggs + 4 tbs water)
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare 9×13 pan with cooking spray. In large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients in small mixing bowl and add to dry. Mix well. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Cut into individual bars. Makes 18 bars (I usually get a little less because I cut them larger).

Jonathan and I wait for the already cut bars to cool completely, and then we put them in individual snack bags, and then in the freezer.  They taste great thawing out like normal or if you zap them in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Then, we just rinse out the snack bags and use them again for the next batch.
