Recipe Ingredients for Granola Bars

1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups toasted oats
1 cup toasted almonds
1 1/4 cup raisins

Recipe Directions for Granola Bars

  1. Generously grease an 8x10 inch pan and set aside. In a sauté pan, brown chopped almonds and oats till golden. Set aside.

  2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine brown sugar and honey until they're completely dissolved. Simmer this sauce for 1 or 2 minutes, or until it gets bubbly. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and stir until combined. Add peanut butter and cinnamon, and stir until well combined (be sure to get all the lumps out.)

  3. Add to this mixture the oats and almonds, wheat germ and raisins. Stir until the mixture is well blended. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and firmly press until the mixture is evenly distributed and level.

  4. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes, but be careful not to burn. Keep an eye on the bottom of the pan. Remove the pan from the oven, and let the mixture cool completely before you cut the bars. While the mixture is cooling, press down a few times with a spatula to help it keep its form. The bars should be stored in an airtight container.
