  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well.
  • Press the granola mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes for chewy granola bars. The edges should just start to turn brown. For crunchier granola bars, bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing from the pan with the foil. Cut into 18 bars.
  • Cool completely before handling the bars or they will fall apart.
  • Store individually wrapped and air-tight for 2-3 weeks at room temperature.
