Breakfast!

I'm not a breakfast person... I don't like breakfast foods... I know, I'm weird :) So some days I don't eat breakfast and them I'm hungry again at 10:00 and then I eat and it throws the whole day off :) Well, the other day my friend Kelley had a recipe for some breakfast bars... they sounded good so I thought I'd give them a try:Oat & Almond Breakfast Bars
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/2 c honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 lg egg
2 c old-fashioned oats, uncooked
3/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 c sliced almonds (if you can’t slice them, then chop or grind)
1/2 c toasted wheat germ
1/2 c raisins
Optional:
½ cup Mini Chocolate Chips (highly recommended)
Walnuts
3/4 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 13" by 9" metal baking pan with nonstick foil (If not using nonstick, lightly grease foil).
2. In 2-cup liquid measuring cup, stir oil, honey, vanilla, and egg until mixed. In large bowl, with fork, mix oats, flour, sugar, almonds, wheat germ, raisins, and salt until combined. With rubber spatula, stir honey mixture into oat mixture until blended; scrape into prepared pan. With wet hand, pat oat mixture evenly into pan.
3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until pale golden around edges. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
4. When cool, transfer using foil to cutting board. Cut! Store in tightly sealed container at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
YUM! I finally have something I like to eat for breakfast! Thought I'd pass it along!

This recipe is very similar to our granola bar recipe except we don't use eggs.
