Chewy Granola Bars

I made Chewy Granola Bars on Monday night, but haven't gotten around to posting until now. I used this link that Carla posted but, as usual, made some adjustments:

1 cup agave syrup
2/3 cup smooth almond butter
2 2/3 cups rolled oats
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t cloves
1/2 t nutmeg
1/3 cup wheat germ
2 cups mix-ins: raw almonds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, walnut halves and pepitas

Chewy Granola Bar Ingredients

we have a great bulk store up the street. Whenever I go there I always get a Vege Hut vegetable patty and eat it on the way home. It's my ritual :)

Chewy Granola Bar Ingredients, before cutting

Baked for about 15 minutes.

In hindsight, adding ground flax would have been a great idea! I don't have a shot of the cut bars, but they did turn out a bit crumbly even after adding some water to the mix. I'll definitely play with this recipe - it's way cheaper, healthier and tastier than those store bought ones! Next time I won't be afraid to add more agave syrup or nut butter.

They are wonderful with good, strong coffee!
