Home-made Granola Bars

The Pennsylvania Nutrition Program has a carrot granola bar recipe I tried out for work. It's easier than you'd expect and there are carrots which is an added bonus.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.Heat honey and peanut butter in a sauce pan to melt.

3. Add oatmeal, craisins, carrots, stir until combined.

4. Pour concoction into baking pan/sheet, press down. Bake for 25 minutes

I was impatient and didn't let the bars cool before eating a few with hot apple cider.
IF you let them sit they do get a lot more bar like. This would be a good breakfast treat too.

Depending on how thick you want the bars to be you may want a bigger pan and increase the cooking time. The ones I made were pretty thick. 

Throw back bonus: using juicer pulp is an option too!

Serving size: 1 bar. Yield: 12 bars.
