Serves 24 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

2 C rolled oats
1/2 C wheat germ
1/4 C flax seed
1/3 C brown sugar
1 C whole wheat or all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 C honey
1 egg, beaten
2/3 C natural peanut butter (we prefer chunky!)
milk or water in case dough is too dry
1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional


Preheat oven to 350.


Grease a 9x13 pan.


In a large bowl, mix together the oats, wheat germ, flax seed, flour, brown sugar and salt.


Add the honey, egg, and peanut butter.


Mix until well-blended.


If dough is too dry, add a little milk or water a tablespoon at a time. The dryness depends on the moistness of your natural peanut butter.


Pat dough evenly into pan.


Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until edges start to turn golden.


Let the bars cool for 5-10 minutes and then cut while still warm.


Cool completely and store in an airtight container.


Pairs Well With


Notes

My husband and I love peanut butter! We also eat a lot of granola bars because they are the perfect convenience food. I decided to create a healthy, protein-packed recipe that would include our favorite ingredient and would be quick to make (since I make a lot of them!).

A dash of local for every season
