Homemade Granola Bars

Our family LOVES Granola Bars.....so I thought, how hard can homemade granola bars be??? It's so simple to make and hardly takes any time!

Here is the recipe that I used:
     
                  4 1/2 cups Honeyville's 6 grain rolled mix
                  1 cup all-purpose flour
                  1 teaspoon baking soda
                  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
                  2/3 cup butter, softened (I used Honeyville's Powdered Butter)
                  1/2 cup honey
                  1/3 cup packed brown sugar
                  2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
                  2 TBS of craisins
                  1/4 c. of coconut
Notice the Honeyville's Powdered Butter? I used 18 TBS of powder to 8 tsp. of water and whipped it up until it looked like softened butter.....so easy!






Mix all the ingredient together. I used my Bosch, but you could use any mixer you had, even the good ole spoon and hand!



Once sticky, put in a 9x13 greased pan and bake at 325 degrees for 18-22 mins. It will turn golden brown and look delicious!


Let the granola bars cool for 10 minutes and then cut and enjoy!!! YUMMY!!! Happy family!

The only thing I would add to this recipe is a little flax seed for those looking for ways to lower cholesterol and add Omega 3 in their diets.
