Crunchy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars


The girls and I whipped up a batch of these granola bars once we realized we were almost out of snack and breakfast foods and we won’t be grocery shopping for a few more days.  So, thank goodness for food storage.  These are packed with nuts, seeds and grains and have just a hint of sweetness to go along with a great crunch.


2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flax
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey (or molasses)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.  Sift together the oats, coconut, seeds, almonds, flax and wheat germ.  Pour into a 13×9 pan and brown in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Meanwhile, melt remaining ingredients (except for chocolate chips) in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.  Combine with toasted oat mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Grease the 13×9 pan and press granola firmly in (spritz your hands with cooking spray if it’s sticking).  Bake at 300F for 20 minutes.  Cool completely.  Flip granola out of pan and cut.
