No Bake Granola Bars

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"Great quick and easy granola bar recipe that kids can make. Perfect to throw in lunches or in your purse for travel. You can also add 1/4 cup wheat germ without changing the consistency. Change up the dried fruit, nuts, and chocolate for different flavors. I generally keep the bars in the refrigerator until I am ready to eat them, but these keep well to take to work or school."

I found this to have way too much peanut butter and honey. Those flavors overpower everything else I put in this recipe. I added slivered almonds, sunflower seeds, choc chips, and dried apricots...

My Family liked these granola bars, but I cut the bars into 36 servings. It has quite a bit of peanut butter,so my family preferred the smaller servings.
