Groovy Granola Bars
4 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup all-purpose flour (or 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup butter (not margarine) softened
3/4 cup honey
1 cup dried raisins, cranberries, blueberries, or apples
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, almonds, or other nuts

Preheat oven to 325F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the dried
fruit and nuts. Mix well with an electric mixer until all ingredients are incorporated. Get your
muscles ready. This stuff is thick! Stir in the fruit and nuts until they are mixed into the oatmeal
dough. Scoop out dough and press into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, lined with foil and sprayed with
nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan for 10
minutes. Lift foil on the sides to remove the entire batch from the pan. Cut into bars and cool
another 10 minutes before removing cut bars from foil. Store in an air-tight container or
individually wrap each one in plastic wrap so they’re ready to go when you are! Eat plain with a
glass milk or fresh juice, or for a festive snack or dessert serve with frozen yogurt topped with
fresh fruit.

Makes 24 servings.
