Delicious Granola Bars

So have any of you cooked anything out the of "The Sneaky Chef" Cookbook??  IT IS INCREDIBLE!!!!  If you have picky eaters who may not like veggies or even fruit then this is the cookbook for you!!  Luckily my kids will pretty much eat fruits and veggies but this cookbook has such great healthy versions of things we all cook!  One of which is granola bars :)  My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE granola bars and I am really trying to go more towards homemade than boxed.  So I decided to try these and they are DELISH!!!  They are called Grab N Go Granola Bars... Recipe is below.....









My Little Helper :)



The Sneaky Chef - Grab N Go Granola Bars
- 2/3 cup rolled oats, ground in a food processor to about ½ cup 

- 1/2 cup blanched, slivered almonds, ground in a food processor to about 1/3 cup (omit if allergic, and add another 1/3 cup of ground oats instead) 
- 1/4 cup wheat germ 
- 1 cup crispy brown rice cereal (or Rice Krispies) ... (I USED RICE CHEX munched up!)
- 1 cup nonfat dry milk 
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
- 1/2 teaspoon salt 
- 1/4 cup canola oil 
- 1/2 cup honey 
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional) 
- Optional extra boost: 1/4 cup raisins or dried blueberries 

> Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch square or 9-by-13 inch baking pan completely with foil and butter the foil (or spray with oil). 

> In a medium bowl, combine oats, almonds (if using), wheat germ, cereal, dry milk, cinnamon, and salt. Mix in the canola oil, honey, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips (and/or dried fruit, optional). Mix well, then pour into the prepared baking pan. Press down with palm of hand, evenly distributing the mixture into the corners of the dish and bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Check occasionally to prevent burning. 

> Remove from the oven and using the foil to help you, lift the giant bar out of pan. Place on a flat surface and while still warm, cut into small bars. 

Store in an airtight container for up to a week, or freeze in plastic bags.

*THE RECIPE HAS BEEN CHANGED BY THE AUTHOR OF THE COOKBOOK...PEOPLE WERE WONDERING WHY THE GRANOLA BARS WERE CRUMBLING WHEN THEY CUT THEM SO SOMEONE WROTE TO HER AND SAID THAT THEY TOOK OUT HALF OF THE CALLED OIL AND IT SOLVED THE PROBLEM!!  SO THIS IS THE NEW ADJUSTED RECIPE!
