Nearly Instant Granola Bars

Easy Homemade Granola Bars with Whole Oats

Easy Homemade Granola Bars with Whole Oats

Once you’ve given these oat bars a try chance are good they’ll replace your prepared granola bar purchases.  They are super quick to pull together, decidedly tasty and cost a fraction of what commercial granola bars cost.

Now to be sure these aren’t super health food – they have quite a bit of fat and sugar mixed in with the whole grain oats – but then at least in terms of sugar content that’s not really different from the commercial product.  All the same, these are our favorite for packing along when we head off into the outdoors on adventures where we’re burning loads of energy.

Once you give them a try I’m sure you’ll be keeping this recipe handy.

Chewy Oatmeal-Barley Raisin Cookies

You know those cookies from the store, the “fresh like” ones that are soft and chewy and oh so good.  I have a soft spot for the Oatmeal-Raisin ones.   These ones trump those.  They taste better, feature all whole grains, and can be whipped together in under ten minutes.  They go together quickly, if you are doing it by hand try to grab a Danish Whisk – you won’t go back to a wooden soon after you’ve tried it – or they can be made with even less effort with a stand mixer if you have one.

I think cookies have an undeserved reputation in some folks mind that they are a hassle.  I think a big part of that can be resolved by using silicon baking sheets.  They pretty much guarantee that you won’t suffer from the burnt bottom syndrome and they are reusable for many years – my oldest ones have been around for about ten years and are just about at the point that they need to be retired.

This recipe uses whole barley flour milled in the Homestead Grain Mill but you could just as easily substitute whole wheat, rye, triticale or spelt flour.
