Cathy's Granola Bars

I cannot stop eating these. I adapted them from a recipe I found off of, and made them healthier (less salt, less oil, substitutions etc..) and I cannot stop eating them.

Makes 24 bars

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce, unsweetened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease up a 9x13 baking pan (important).
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients (the first 7 ingredients)
  3. Create a funnel in the middle of the dry ingredients, and add the beaten egg, oil, apple sauce, and vanilla.
  4. Mix it up, and press into the greased baking pan.
  5. Bake for 28-33 minutes, or until the edges are a little brown.
Tip: cut them up 3-5 minutes after taking them out of the oven, or they will be too hard to cut through.

Another tip: freeze them and put them in your kids lunches!
