Breakfast Granola Bars or Snacks

– Ingredients-

 

YIELD: 15 PIECES
1 3/4 cup oatmeal, large flakes
1/4 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/8 cup hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
1/8 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/8 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup honey
1/8 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup organic crunchy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

– Directions –

 

  1. Combine first eight ingredients in a large bowl; mix well, and set them aside.
  2. Combine the honey, brown sugar and coconut oil in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat stirring until sugar dissolves and the mixture is heated through. Remove from the heat; add peanut butter and vanilla extract, stirring until the peanut butter has melted entirely. Pour this sweet, peanut-buttery mixture over the oats and nuts; stir well. Continue stirring until everything is moistened.
  3. Press mixture into a greased 8 x 10-inch pan until flat. Bake at 250˚F for one hour until golden brown. Cut into 15 bars while still warm. After bars cool completely in the pan, remove and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. Enjoy!
