Granola Bars (Peanut Butter-Honey)

  • 2 C old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 C wheat germ
  • 1/2 C smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 1 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 C chopped dried fruit or chopped nuts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 11x7-inch baking pan with foil; spray foil with cooking spray.

Spread the oats, wheat germ and nuts if using onto a half-sheet pan. Place in the oven and toast for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally; remove from oven.

In the meantime, combine the peanut butter, honey, brown sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook until the brown sugar has completely dissolved and mixture is combined.

Add the oat mixture to the liquid mixture; add the dried fruit if using, and stir to combine. Turn mixture out into the prepared baking pan and press down, evenly distributing the mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into 16 pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
