Calling All Cooks Need Help in Gluten-Free Recipes & Cooking Tips Posted March 22, 2010 · Report to Admin Here is a chewy granola bar recipe you may like. These are homemade but easy and really good: 1 cup brown sugar(lightly packed) 2/3 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted 2 teaspoons vanilla 3 cups oatmeal 1/2 cup coconut (optional) 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1/2 cup raisins 2 tablespoons sesame seeds 1 cup chocolate chips(optional) Add any dried fruit you like or chopped nuts Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. In large bowl combine sugar, peanut butter, corn syrup, margarine & vanilla, mixing well. Add all remaining ingredients. Press evenly in pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Allow to cool for 1 hour. I bake these,let them cool, then cut into bars and wrap individually. They keep well & taste great. Hope this helps!
