Granola Bars - Our Favorite!!

These are bar-none our favorite granola bar. Not only are they yummy but they are pretty healthy too. Just make sure to mix ingredients well, pat down hard and not overbake:)

4 cups oatmeal
2 cups unbleached flour
1-2 tablespoons flax meal, oat bran or wheat germ (optional)
1/4 cup raw agave nectar (or sugar)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive or coconut oil
3/4 cup honey
chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients. Make sure to stir very well till everything is totally combined.

Pour into a greased cake pan and press down firmly to make sure bars stay together after they are baked.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or till the top is puffy and soft. Do not brown or they will turn out hard.

Cut while still warm.
