Homemade Granola Bars

This is one recipe you simply must try. You can see the original recipe at the lovely Alisa Burke blog.

Here is the recipe with the changes I made:

2 c. seven grain mix (oats + other goodies, you could just use oats)
1 1/2 c. sliced almonds and walnuts
1/2 c. unsweetened dried coconut
Mix the above together and toast on a baking sheet at 350 for 5-10 minutes.

In a sauce pan stir together 1/3 c. butter, 2/3 c. honey, 1/2 t. salt, 1/4 c. sugar, and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Let boil for about 30 seconds.

Apples that we dehydrated last summer were the only type of dried fruit I had on hand - so I added 2 cups of chopped dried apples. (tomorrow I"m going to try using chopped fresh apples...)

Mix liquid and apples with oat mixture. Spread out on a highly buttered baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes, until browned on top. Cut them into squares and get them out of the pan as soon as they have started to harden.
They were so good - we ate them for supper.
