Granola Bars - recipie

I am on the go - Go Go Go!

One of my favorite breakfasts in the world is oatmeal, but I don't always have time to sit down and enjoy it.

I did some searching and found several great recipes for granola bars, combined 3 - 4 different recipes and came up with this one :) Now I have something that I can grab on the go, and still feel full all morning.

2 1/2 c Rolled Oats
1/3 c sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 c dried cranberries
6 dates, chopped
1/8 c pumpkin seeds
1/8 c sunflower seeds
1/3 c pecans, chopped
1 T flax seed
1 T hemp seeds
Salt and pepper
1/3 c olive oil
1/3 c honey

Combine all dry ingredients first.

Add oil and honey - mix well

Place in greased 9x9 pan

Press down hard. I used a broad bottomed bowl and mashed it in there good!!

Bake 325 degrees 30 min

Cool, cut into 12 squares.

Approx 230 calories each

I used honey, because I was out of molasses.  Use molasses or maple syrup to make it vegan, which will change the calories as well. May try it again with agave, but I am not a fan of it. I also used salt and pepper, because I am more into the savory/salty than the sweet.

Store in fridge in air tight container.

Tell me what you think!!!
