This recipe for homemade granola bars comes from Ina Garten and loaded with healthy oats, fruits and nuts.  My kids love these in their school lunches!

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 18 bars

Ingredients

  • 2 C whole oats
  • 1 C sliced almonds (I used slivered almonds)
  • 1 C sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 C wheat germ
  • 3 T unsalted butter
  • 2/3 C honey
  • 1/4 C light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C chopped dates
  • 1/2 C chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 C dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a large sheet pan, mix together the oats, almonds and coconut. Toast in the oven for 10 minutes then dump into a large mixing bowl. Add the wheat germ. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  2. While oats are toasting, combine the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 1 minutes once it reaches a boil. Pour over the ingredients in the bowl. Add the dried fruit and mix well. Dump into a greased 8 x 13 pan and press firmly with wet hands.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool completely (about 3 hours) before slicing and serving.
