2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (for homemade blend, click here: Sandra's Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey (see the link to recipe for Homemade Alaska Fireweed-Clover Honey)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper, and spray with butter-flavored oil.
In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, brown sugar, raisins, wheat germ, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and pecans. In a smaller bowl, whisk the oil, honey, egg, and vanilla, and then pour into the flour mixture in the large bowl, and mix by hand until the liquid is evenly combined.
Press evenly into the prepared baking dish. Bake 20 to 25 to minutes, until the edges are slightly golden. Remove from oven and place the baking dish on a rack to completely cool before removing to a cutting board, and then cut into 20 honey granola bars. – Enjoy.
