Tomorrow is National Granola Bar day & we have a recipe for you celebrate!

   The history of exactly who invented the granola bar is unclear, but the popular healthy treat came about in the mid- 1970s and today it is a major part of the $3 billion cereal bar business in the US.

  • In a large mixing bowl combine oats, wheat germ and flax seed.
  • Mix well with honey and vegetable oil.
  • Lay mixture on a baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree oven, turning every 8 mins to prevent burning.
