Low-Fat Honey Granola Bars


prep 0:15       total 0:35


12 servings



1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp. honey
1/3 cup dark raisins or
chopped dried apricots (I mix dried cherries or
cranberries with the raisins)


Combine the oats, flour, wheat germ, and cinnamon, and stir to mix well. Add the honey, and stir until the mixture is moist and crumbly. Fold in the raisins or other fruits. Coat an 8-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pat the mixture into the pan, and bake at 300°F for 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool to room temperature, cut into bars, and serve.

i changed the raisins to chopped peanuts and pushed choc bits on the top before baking so my kids would see it as more 'store-bought'. What a winner!! I also tripled the recipe as I couldn't see how you would get 12 decent sized bars out of the original recipe. Still, it's a winner in our house! They still liked it even after telling them those horrid words, "but it's healthy"!!

I love this recipe! My family likes it too, though I haven't told them about the health aspect of it. Shhhh. I would definately make this again, though I also tripled the recipe. Making it as it's written would barely have covered my pan.
