Granola Bars

Easy to make oatmeal bars for lunches and snacks!  Takes about 15 minutes.

2 cups old fashioned oatmeal  (not instant)

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup raisins

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup brown sugar (optional- if you like sweeter granola bars)

Roast oatmeal and nuts in oven at 350 degrees about 10 minutes or till golden brown. Mix remaining ingredients; add roasted oatmeal and nuts and stir until well coated and blended. Pour into square baking dish (coated with non-stick spray); cover with wax paper and press mixture down firmly with your hand. Remove paper, refrigerate 2-3 hours

Take out, cut into bars and store in covered container in fridge with wax paper between layers to prevent sticking.

You can add cranberries, dates, dried cherries etc. to this mix; whatever you like. The bars stay together and hold their shape well.               Enjoy!
