I got the idea of making granola bars from my hubby last night. He asked me to buy some to take in his lunches. If you have read my blog, you`ll know that I don`t like buying what I can make. So I looked up some recipes online, didn't fine one I liked the sound or look of. This is what we made instead and have been enjoying.
- 2 1/2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flax seed
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips *
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 apple sauce (you could use oil instead)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 30 minute. Let it cool for no more than 5 minutes before cutting, or it will become to hard to cut.
These tasted so much better than I expected! *I think next time instead of chocolate chips I'm going to try raisins or dried fruit pieces. Hope you enjoy.
