Granola Bars

  • 2 and 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 3/4 cup dried fruit
  • 2 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup/honey
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large egg whites
Toast up the wheat germ. I put in under the broiler for a few minutes, keep a close eye on it! Microwave the oats for 5 minutes, one minute at a time. Stir those up inbetween minutes.

Mix together all the dry ingredients, then mix in the wet ones. Spray down a 9 x 13 jelly roll pan. Cover in foil, spray down the foil. Pack mix into the jelly roll. Bake at 325 for a half hour or so.

Allow to cool, then cut up. I tried using a pizza cutter, but found a big ol butcher's knife works best. Store in air tight container.

I made there, and they were gone. My friends, Bob and Eric ate them up on me while I was gone. When confronting them, this was the text responses I got:
"Not a chance u r blaming me, it was the bob. But they were very tasty" ~Eric
"Its not my fault you're better than betty crocker!" ~Bob
