Kinda Good For You Breakfast Bar

IMG_9505

You can put wheat germ on a twinkie and it will immediately become part of a nutritional breakfast.

1 1/4 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup rolled oats, finely ground, or 1/4 cup oat flour

3/4 cup shredded coconut

1/3 cup wheat germ

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup chopped raisins

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup honey or syrup

Heat oven to 350°F.

Line an 8-by-8 inch square pan with two sheets of parchment paper, extending each up two sides, forming a “sling”.

In a large bowl, combine oats, oat flour, coconut, wheat germ, salt, cinnamon, raisins and chocolate. In a separate, small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, oil and honey/syrup until smooth. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir until combined. Transfer to prepared pan, spreading until flat, then use an additional square of parchment paper to protect to press the ingredients tightly into all corners of the pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tops are golden and the edges are light brown. Let cool completely before cutting. Use a sharp, serrated knife in a very gentle sawing motion to cut bars into desired sizes.
