Homemade Granola Bars

Saturday I spent most of the day in the kitchen and a little bit on Sunday too.
I had a homemade granola recipe I wanted to try from my friend Ami (click on her name for recipe), which came out great! Madilynn loves snacking on it!!!
I also found a recipe for Homemade Granola Bars.
Here is the recipe:

(pictured are cinnamon raisin bars)
2 cups quick cooking oats - 1 cup all purpose flour - 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (i used 1/2 cup) - 3/4 cup raisins - 1/2 cup wheat germ (did not use) - 1/2 tsp salt - 1/2 tsp cinnamon - 1/2 cup chopped English walnut (did not use) - 1/2 cup vegetable oil - 1/2 cup honey - 1 egg - 2 tsp vanilla

1. combine oats, flour, brown sugar, raisins, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl, making sure to beat the brown sugar lumps into submission
2. combine egg, oil, honey, and vanilla in a small bowl
3. add the wet ingredients to the dry, mix it all up, and dump into a greased 9x13 pan - using a greased spatula, or wet spoon
***it doesn't look like it will cover the dish but it will
4. bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges - cool pan on a wire rack and when its cooled completely you can cut into whatever size bars you like

To make chocolate chip - delete the raisins and cinnamon

***mine made 20 bars
*** the recipe i got this from says they freeze great too
