Homemade Granola Bars
Another PA.com member gave me this recipe years ago and I haven't tried it, but since we were discussing the Kellogg's Granola Bites to-day on the board, I thought I'd post this:-
These are yummy! I substituted 2 teaspoons of flour for the cornstarch and
1/4 cup crushed corn flakes for the wheat germ, since I was out of both of
Peanut-/Tree nut-free Granola Bars
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon
1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon
1/2 cup margarine, softened 1 1/2 cups
quick rolled oats
2 1/4 Tablespoons honey 1 cup crisp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup EACH,
raisins and chocolate chips
1 cup unbleached all-purposed flour 1/4 cup wheat
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13-by-9-by-2-inch pan.
2. In a large bowl, with a hand held electric mixer set on medium speed,
beat sugars and margarine until fluffy. Blend in honey and vanilla. Slowly
add flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, and baking powder; beat at low speed. With
a wooden spoon, fold in oats, rice cereal, raisins, chocolate chips, and
wheat germ until well mixed. Place in prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes
until golden brown.
3. Cool completely and cut into bars.
Makes 16 bars.
