Homemade Granola Bars

I found this recipe in a local newspaper and tweaked it a bit based on items we had on hand:

2 C rolled oats

3/4 C brown sugar (I used 1/2 C)

1/3 C ground flax seed

1 tsp cinnamon

1 C whole wheat flour

3/4 C raisins (I used 1 C assortment of dried apricots, cranberries and raisins)

1/2 C honey

1 beaten egg

1/2 C Canola oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350, line a 9″ x 13″ pan w/foil and grease.  Add oats, sugar, flax, cinnamon, flour and dried fruits together in bowl.

Next add egg, oil, vanilla and honey and mix with hands.

Press mixture into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool and cut into bars. Delicious!  Use any crumbly pieces in cereal with milk or as dessert on top of ice cream.
