Make your own whole food granola bars

Making your own healthy, natural granola bars is fun and easy. Here's one recipe that will take you about half and hour from start to finish.

Happy Hippie Granola Bars

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar ( store bought or make your own)
1/2 cup honey
1 cup dried fruit (any kind)
1 tbsp butter
1 cup wheat germ

Toast the oats and wheat germ on a cookie sheet for ten minutes (until lightly browned). Then
melt honey, butter, and brown sugar. Once it is melted, remove from heat and add oats, wheat germ, and dried fruits. Put into a square glass pan and let cool. Once cooled, cut into squares. You can store your granola bars in the refrigerator for about a week.
