CHEWY GRANOLA BARS

~ The Pillsbury Cookbook

1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/3 c. butter, melted
2 t. vanilla
3 c. quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 c. coconut
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. raisins
1/3 c. wheat germ
2 T. sesame seed
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate, carob, or peanut butter chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13-inch pan. In large bowl, combine brown sugar, peanut butter, corn syrup, margarine and vanilla; blend well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Press mixture evenly into pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.

Notes: These are a fabulous snack!! They are sweet enough to be a treat, but packed with a bunch of healthy stuff too. It’s what I make when my sweet tooth is kicking in, but I don’t want to eat pure junk.
