Healthy Chewy Granola Bar Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 24)
Time: Under 45 Minutes

  • 2 1/2 cups regular rolled quaker oats

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup wheat germ

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup craisins or raisins

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 cup applesauce

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 320 degrees F (175 degrees C) and liberally grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.

    In a large bowl, add the oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, allspice, flour, raisins and salt. Mix thoroughly. Make a well in the center and set aside.

    In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, egg, applesauce, and vanilla. Then pour the wet ingredients into the well in the center of the oat mixture. Use your hands to mix everything together until everything is well coated. Then pat the mixture evenly into the prepared pan using your hands. To ensure chewiness leave a 1 1/2 inch space at the end of the pan. Don't worry about it spreading. It will cook exactly as where it sits.

    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not overcook. Granola bars are done when the edges begin to brown (the center may still appear undone). IMPORTANT: Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars while still warm. If you wait to long the bars will be too difficult to cut into bars.


    This recipe is very adaptable. Replace the raisins with your favorite dried fruit. Or you could increase the cinnamon and add dried, chopped apples. Add chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans. The possibilities are endless!
