To make the granola bars:
Bake 6 cups of old fashioned oatmeal for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
While the oats are baking, stir together the following:
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup coconut (optional)
Next stir the above mixture into the baked oats.
Mix together the following, then stir into dry ingredients:
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract (sometimes I use almond)
1/3 cup milk
one beaten egg
Press into pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
"If wishes and buts were clusters of nuts,
we'd all have a bowl of granola."
