Muesli Breakfast Bars

These bars make a perfect breakfast on the go—they a satisfying way to start the day. If you want to make them gluten-free, replace wheat germ with ground flax seeds.

Ingredients

  • Dry:

    • 2½ cups rolled oats
    • ½ cup soy flour
    • ½ cup fat-free dry milk
    • ½ cup wheat germ
    • ½ cup sliced almonds
    • ½ cup chopped dried apples
    • ½ cup raisins
    • ½ tsp. salt

    Wet:

    • 1 cup dark honey
    • ½ cup natural unsalted peanut butter
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Lightly coat a 9″x13″ baking pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.
  3. In a small saucepan, stir together the honey, peanut butter, and olive oil over medium-low heat until well blended. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until well-mixed and sticky.
  5. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake just until the edges begin to brown, (25-30 minutes). Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, and then cut into 24 bars. When just cool enough to handle, remove the bars from the pan and place them on a rack to cool completely (1 hour). Store the bars in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to a week.
