This recipe was inspired by chef Lars Kronmark’s granola wedges from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Substitute your favorite fruit, nuts and/or seeds for the sunflower seeds and/or dried cranberries in these granola bars.

"Am always looking for recipes that use whole grains. Used to use rolled wheat all the time, but find it increasingly hard to find. This is so tasty and full of good, whole foods! Awesome "

served at a work breakfast everyone wanted the recipe, I use mixed seeds (sunflower,pumpkin, & sesame) along with 1/4 C of chopped mixed nuts

quick and easy to adapt wo the ingrediaents you have on hand

Really good! I added a tsp or so of molasses and vanilla for flavor, and plumped the craisins in pineapple juice before adding to the honey and the rest of the mixture. For nuts I did a combo of sunflower kernels and green pumpkins seeds - good w/cranberries. I also baked it for like 10 min on a very low temperature because it didn't hold together at first, and it came out fabulously!

Fast and delicious!

Soooo much better than storebought granola bars, and a ton healthier too. I used wheat germ instead of wheat flakes (couldn't find them, and I happened to have wheat germ on hand). Also used chopped cashews instead of sesame seeds (again, had them on hand). Baked the oats/wheat/nut mixture in a 9x13 pan instead of a baking sheet. 10 minutes was about right for that depth of pan.

Healthy, quick snack, easy to make
I will never buy boxed granola bars again!

This is the most amazing granola bar I've ever had. I will never, never buy boxed granola bars again. I didn't have the wheat flour it called for, so I subbed 1 1/2 cups oats and 1/2 c. flaxseed. I also added chopped pecans instead of sunflower seeds. I pressed it into a 9 x 9 square pan to make 9 squares. Try it you will love it. It was so easy to make. I was done within 15 minutes.

Easy to make, delicious, easy to adapt to your pantry

Great for Breakfast on the Go, or when you just don't want to think about it. I could not find "wheat flakes" so substituted Five Grain Flakes from HEB bulk items. It was so easy to make and came out of the pan perfectly. I did cut into smaller servings.

Easy - Perfect for Breakfast
