What I Took to Homeschool Co-op Today

Granola Bars

2 cups flour (whole wheat is fine)
2 cups rolled oats (I used old fashioned)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened (I used 1/2 coconut oil)
2/3 cup peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 TBSP peanut butter

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  Mix all bar ingredients together in electric mixer.
3.  Press into an ungreased 15x10" jelly roll pan.  (I sprayed with cooking spray anyway.)
4.  Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.
5.  Cool a bit.
6.  In small glass bowl, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter for 1 minute in microwave, or until smooth.
7.  Blend together and spread over bars.
8.  Cool completely and cut into bars.
9.  Enjoy!  :)

These were a perfect snack for homeschool co-op today and would be good for an after-school snack.

The last time I made granola bars...I put chocolate frosting on them too!! (we must still think alike!)

I would not recommend it that way for the car though...gets a little messy!
