Granola bars


My daughters both love granola bars and its hard to find vegan granola bars at the store, I decided to try and make them...These turned out pretty good, except that I wish I added a bit more maple syrup and almond butter.

2 cups old fashion oats
1 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped almonds

1 1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil-melted
1 tbsp vanilla 

Preheat oven to 350
Add wet to dry, stir until well combined.
Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper
press mixture firmly down. 
Bake for 25 minutes.
Cut while still warm. 
Let cool

  4. After we ate a couple everyone agreed they needed more maple syrup, I would add another 1/4 a cup. Hope they turn out good for you :)
