Homemade Granola Bars

I made these yesterday and they are oh so good. Enjoy!

Prep: 30 min
Bake 15 min
Yield 2 dozen

3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup chopped almonds
1 egg beaten
2/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sunflower kernels
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 cup of any fruit mixture
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Combine oats and almonds in a 15x10 pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 15 min or until toasted, stirring occasionally.
2. In a large bowl, combine the egg, butter, honey and vanilla. Stir in the sunflower kernels, coconut, fruit, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in oat mixture.
3. Coat pan again with cooking spray. Press mixture into pan. Bake at 350 for 14-15 min or until edges are brown. Cool on wire rack.

** I will probably decrease the brown sugar to 1/4 cup next time. It is really good, but I think I will like it just as well with a little bit less sugar.
