~ All You magazine - 8/26/11

2 c. quick-cooking oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. wheat germ
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. golden raisins
1/2 c. finely chopped dried apples
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/3 c. maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 T. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with foil and mist with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, flour, wheat germ, cinnamon, and salt, breaking up any lumps of brown sugar. Add raisins, apples, and walnuts.

In a separate bowl, whisk syrup, egg, oil, and vanilla. Pour syrup mixture into oat mixture and combine well.

Press mixture into pan and bake 30-35 minutes or until just turning golden brown around the edges. Place pan on a wire rack to cool for five minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut into bars in the pan while still warm. Cool a while longer before removing bars in foil from pan to a rack to cool completely.

Notes: I use regular raisins, as we always have them on hand. Sometimes I use chopped almonds instead of walnuts.
