Chewy Granola Bars

I have been making lots of granola bars lately. When I'm in a hurry, granola bars are so much quicker than cookies.

We've been experimenting with different add-ins. That's the great thing about these bars. Just use up what you have.

1/2 cup oat flour (I grind the oats in a small food processor)

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1/4 t. baking soda

1/4 t. baking powder

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. salt

1/3 cup honey

Optional add-ins (to total one cup):
chocolate chips (Enjoy Life)
chopped nuts
dried fruit

Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and mix. Add honey and mix well. Add any "add-ins" at this point.

Press the mix evenly into a 8" x 8" pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
