The original recipe called for brown sugar but it does not need it. I also cut the honey to 1/4 cup for me.  It is also optional to add Cacao Sweet Nibs to add nutrition and crunch. Make sure you cut  the bars within a couple minutes after taking them out of the oven and remove the cut pieces to a plate so they do not stick to the baking dish. Now make sure you eat them with a fresh vegetable and a protein. They have the good fat in them already.

 

2 cups rolled oats
• 1/2 cup wheat germ
• 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 3/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1 egg, beaten
• 1/2 cup coconut oil
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 baking dish. Mix together first 6 ingredients, then make a well in the center and add the honey, beaten egg, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix well. Pat the mixture evenly into the baking dish.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the edges are beginning to turn golden. Cool for 5 minutes and then cut into bars and remove from dish WHILE STILL WARM. Well unless you want to chip it out and use the crumbled pieces for ice cream topping. In that case, just let it cool as long as you wish.
