Granola Bars


  • 2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • Ad
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup nuts
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg, beaten


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch pan (don't use non-stick, you'll have to cut them into bars and could scratch your pan). In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center. Pour in the oil, honey, egg and vanilla. Mix well. Pat the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake 30-35 minutes until bars begin to turn golden. Cut into bars while still warm (if you let them cool, they will be too hard to cut).

My husband loves the Nature Valley bars, but they can be so expensive. This recipe costs less than $1.00 to make 20 bars versus buying them in the store!

This sounds delicious, but I would like to know how you can buy all those ingredients for $1.00. Maybe you were not counting the ingredients you had on hand?
