Fruit and Chocolate Granola Bars

I just want to thank you all so much for bearing with Brian and I as we get used to this new lifestyle of working hard and playing less.

We haven’t had time for many Thirsty Thursdays or elaborate dinners, but I trust you know the feeling.  It’s called life.

I joked with my family this weekend that home ownership is no joke. I get that this place is only 500 square feet bigger than our last apartment, but it feels like a never ending clean/organize fest.


Anyway, with all this work and hardly any play, I need my energy/. And that is why I masked all of this dried fruit with chocolate in my granola bars.  I get the extra boost and it tastes like chocolate. Win.

Preheat oven to 300. Toast the oatmeal, almonds, and coconut on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and add wheat germ.  Set aside. Heat the honey, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and salt in a saucepan until all combined and melted. Pour over toasted oatmeal and add fruit and chocolate.  Toss well, making sure everything is coated.  Press into a parchment lined baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 300. Remove and let sit for 2 hours, cut and take out of pan to serve.
