Laurie's Chewy Granola Bars

Chewy Granola Bars
3 c. rolled oats- (Trader Joe’s are gluten free)
1 c. flour- (Trader Joe’s gluten free all purpose) (make sure to get subgum powder)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. oil 
Combine ingredients until mixed, then add:
1 c. chopped nuts
1/2 c. raisins
1 c. chocolate chips
Side note: I’ve never actually used this combination, I always substitute and mix and match ingredients. This recipe is very forgiving so let your creativity take charge!
Press into a 9×13 greased pan.
Bake at 325* for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting. If you don’t they’ll fall apart–you’ve been warned.

Some of our favorite add-ins are
Cinnamon Raisin—walnuts, raisins, and cinnamon chips
Cranberry Walnut–walnuts, craisins, and white chocolate chips
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip-leave out the nuts and raisins, and add 1/2 c. peanut butter and mini chocolate chips

Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, currants
