Serves: 12 bars
All natural, homemade granola bars
  • 2 cups old fashion rolled oats
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar ( we use light )
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips or white chocolate chips or (use ½ cup of each and add both to the mix)
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ sunflower seeds
  • ( you may also add flax seeds or any other ingredients you would like in your granola bars: raisins, dried cranberries and more.)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of lite virgin olive oil, or your oil of choice.
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • What make these granola bars fun is that you can customize what you would like to add or leave out. If you don't like walnuts or chocolate chips, you can leave those out of the recipe and these are still super yummy.
  1. Preheat your oven to 350, then spray your pan with cooking spray. (I love to use my pampered chef brownie pan for these.)
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together well.
  3. Add oil to the measuring cup first and add to the mix.
  4. Then add the honey to the same cup that the oil was in and add to the mix. I do it in this order because the honey will just slide out of the measuring cup because of the oil. This is much easier than trying to scoop the honey out of the cup.
  5. Next beat your egg and add to the mix.
  6. Add the vanilla extract and mix everything together really well.
  7. Spread in the pan and pack it down a bit.
  8. Bake for about 35 minutes.
