Granola bar recipe

I posted this as a comment to Yolanda, but thought others might miss it in the comments. For anyone who'd like to try them, here is the granola bar "cookie" recipe:

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup WW pastry flour
1/4 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 cup melted coconut oil (or butter)
1/3 cup honey
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
approx. 1 cup add ins (I use about 1 T. chia seeds, maybe 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, and fill the rest of the cup with well chopped walnuts.)

Preheat the oven to 350 deg. Line a 9x13 pan with foil or parchment paper and coat with a little oil. Combine the dry ingredients, then combine the wet ingredients separately (I usually just use my 2 cup glass measuring cup) Pour the wet into the dry and stir until well blended. Press evenly into a pan - I find a piece of parchment paper makes this a lot easier!

Bake 25 to 30 minutes - it is done when it is starting to turn golden. It usually takes 25 min in my oven. Let cool completely then turn out onto a cutting board. Cut into bars or squares and store in an airtight container.

    This sounds so yummy - and nutritious. I can't wait to try this recipe. I think it may even satisfy my hubby's sweet tooth. ;-)
