Homemade Granola Bars


I have  friend who loves granola bars but is allergic to coconut, so these granola bars from Mary Annís Mixing it Up With Grains book are his new favorite thing.


Granola Bars
3/4c    soft shortening
1/2c    granulated sugar
1c       packed brown sugar
1/4c    water
1         egg
1tsp    vanilla
1c       whole wheat or white flour
1tsp    salt
1/2tsp  soda
3c        uncooked oats


Cream shortening and sugars then add water, egg, and vanilla.  Mix flour, salt and soda together then add to shortening mixture mixing well.  Mix in oats.


Spread the dough evenly over the jelly roll pan.


Bake at 350į for 14-16 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your granola bars.
Cut and enjoy.


There are so many variations you can do with this recipe.  I added a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp nutmeg to mine and made spiced granola bars.

Check out the Mixing it up with Grains cookbook for this and more great grain recipes!
