mmmmm, mondays: homemade granola bars


i have a great friend who is a master at all things homemade. she makes her own bread, does everything from scratch and makes the best meals for her family. she is a rock star. i had her granola bars and had to have the recipe for myself. it is a huge hit in this household.

homemade granola bars

4 1/2 cups oats


1/2 cup coconut oil or melted butter

3/4 cup honey

1 cup whole wheat flour

Optional add ins:

chia seeds

chopped pecans

wheat germ

chocolate chips


mix the oats, oil/butter, honey and whole wheat flour until all the ingredients are mixed well and completely coated. add whichever add ins you would like. my family loves the pecans and chocolate chips. mix well.

press into a 9 x 13 pan. bake at 320 degrees for 18-20 minutes. cool and cut into bars. enjoy!
