Lunchbox Granola Bars

By griz104

Ingredients
  • 2 cups (500 mL) rolled oats

  • 1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) ground flax seed

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) packed brown sugar

  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup (250 mL) raisins, chocolate chips or your favorite dried fruit

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sunflower seeds

  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) honey

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) canola oil

  • * 1/4 cup (60 mL) applesauce

  • * 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Oil a 9 x 13 inch (22 x 33 cm) baking pan.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flour, flax seed, brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins, sunflower seeds and salt. Make a well in the center; set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, combine honey, egg, canola oil, applesauce and vanilla. Add liquid ingredients to well and mix. Pat the mixture evenly into a prepared pan.

  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until bars begin to turn golden at the edges. Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars while still warm. Do not allow the bars to cool completely before cutting, or they will be too hard to cut

Richard,

I was always a big granola fan but I now have to watch the carbs. Ahh for the days when I only had to watch fat!

how many servings does this make? the nutritional info says 1 serving but the recipe/instructions do not state how many servings this makes. I don't think that the ONE SERVING equals the ENTIRE 9 X 13 inch pan!
otherwise sounds like a good/healthier sweet treat!
thanks!!
