Peanut Butter-Honey Granola Bars

Submitted by: BHOLG933

Introduction

These granola bars go together so quickly and are a fabulous and healthy breakfast food. I like them best when warmed in the microwave for 15 seconds.

A few important tips that I have picked up from making these several times:

1. Be precise in the measurements of the peanut butter and honey; too much or too little of the wet ingredients will cause them to not bind correctly.

2. While the recipe calls for the bars to be pressed into a pan lined with wax paper, do not use this for storage; they will dry out. Store in a tupperware container or ziplock bag to make sure they don't get dry.

3. A rubber spatula is your best friend in this recipe.

Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    2 cups old fashioned oats
    1/3 cup slivered almonds
    1/3 sunflower seeds
    1/4 cup dried cranberries
    1/2 cup organic peanut butter
    1/2 cup imitation honey

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small saucepan, mix together the peanut butter and imitation honey. Heat over medium-low to medium heat; stir often to avoid scorching. Spread the oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, and any other fillers you would like on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and cook for 5-7 minutes (depending on oven) until lightly toasted. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until evenly mixed. Press into an 11x7 inch pan that has been lined with wax paper and allow to cool. Cut into 8 squares and enjoy!
