Granola Bars

tastier and more filling than anything you'll buy at the store

3 cups oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup crushed almonds
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flax
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla

1. Combine all of the wet ingredients into a bowl.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet one at a time. Mix.
2. Press into a cookie sheet (the granola may not cover the whole cookie sheet. I usually shape it into a rectangle a bit bigger than a 9x13 pan).
3. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15-20 minutes til golden brown.  Take out and cool for 10 minutes.
4. Cut into bars, then bake an additional 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
