Homemade Granola Bars

This is an easy recipe and healthier than the processed granola bars at the store.  Try it out!  Great for people on the go.

The recipe calls for:
2 cups oats
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup of mixed nuts or anything of your choice

-- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
-- Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until moist.  Spread the mixture in a 8 x 8 inch baking dish.  Press the mixture down so it becomes compact in the dish.
-- Bake for 20 minutes.
-- The bars need to cool completely before cutting.

The mix used for the below was almonds, raisins, peanuts and cashews.  YUM!


Other options to add into the mix could be dark chocolate chips, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, etc.  You can also break up the granola bar and add it to yogurt as a nutritious breakfast or snack.
