Granola Bars

Great for school lunches or a snack at home. You can load them up with whatever goodness you like! 

½ c. margarine or butter
1 c. brown sugar
2 TBSP honey
½ tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. whole wheat flour
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. baking powder
1 ½ c. rolled oats
1 ¼  c. Rice Krispies (you could probably skip this and use more oats but I've never tried it)
1 c. nuts/sunflower seeds (optional)
1 c. raisins/chocolate chips

EXTRAS: 1 c. of dried fruit, coconut, sliced almonds, mini M&M’s, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, etc.  Anything pretty much goes!

In mixing bowl cream butter and sugar.  Add honey, vanilla, and egg.  Mix well.  Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture.  Stir in oats, cereal and nuts.  Then add raisins, chocolate chips.  Spread in 9x13' pan.  Bake at 325°F for 18 - 20 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cut when warm.
