Homemade Granola Bars

A friend of mine shared this recipe a few weeks ago and they are soooo good, we braved the heat from the oven to make them again. Let me know if you enjoy them!

1 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter (you can use 1 cup of butter instead of the pb but the flavor is better with the 1/2 cup of each)
1 tsp vanilla
Cream together in large bowl.

Mix in:
4 1/2 cups oats
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (or whatever kind you use for baking)
1 tsp baking soda

Once these are mixed you can add in any nuts, dried fruits or chocolate you want up to 2 cups

Press well into a 9x13 pan (the recipe says to lightly grease it, but I don't). Bake @ 325 for 20 to 30 min or until edges are golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before you cut it and then let it cool completely before removing (if you can wait that long).

Add in ideas:
I use chocolate chips, flax seeds and raisins. You can also try almonds, walnuts, peanuts, chia seeds, cranberries, blueberries, m&m's and those are just off the top of my head. Use what you have!

My next thing to try is making these with coconut oil instead of butter. I'll let you know how they taste! Enjoy!
