Recipe Ingredients for Alton Brown's Granola Bars

8 ounces rolled oats
3 ounces sliced almonds
1 1/2 ounces wheat germ
6 ounces honey
1 3/4 ounces dark brown sugar
1 ounce unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 1/2 ounces dried blueberries
2 ounces dried cherries
2 ounces dried apricots

Recipe Directions for Alton Brown's Granola Bars

  1. Butter a 9 by 9-inch glass baking dish and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Spread the oats, sunflower seeds, almonds, and wheat germ onto a half-sheet pan. Place in the oven and toast for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

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

  4. Once the oat mixture is done, remove it from the oven and reduce the heat to 300 degrees F. Immediately add the oat mixture to the liquid mixture, add the dried fruit, and stir to combine. Turn mixture out into the prepared baking dish and press down, evenly distributing the mixture in the dish and place in the oven to bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
