Chewy Granola Bars


I love these granola bars...  I especially like the nutty flavor of the sunflower kernels...and I like to use sunflowers since we do grow them here on our North Dakota farm.  :)



Chewy Granola Bars

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
2/3 cup honey
3/4 cup butter, melted
 2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup salted sunflower kernels
1 1/4 cup Reese's peanut butter chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
In a large bowl, combine oats, Reese's minichips, chocolate chips and sunflower kernels.
In a smaller bowl stir together the butter, honey, brown sugar, salt and vanilla extract until well combined.

Pour butter mixture over the oatmeal mixture. Stir to combine. Press into a greased-parchment paper lined 15x10x1 inch baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown...watch carefully as it will go from golden to burned very quickly! {ask me how I know}

Thanks for stopping by.  :)

I was just thinking this morning that I should try to find a homemade granola recipe. Thanks!! We love to use sunflower seeds in our baking. I have it pinned and look forward to making it soon.
