My Baby Clothes - Red, White, and Blue Granola Bars

***Submitted by My Baby Clothes Boutique. I totally dropped the ball on this one! I should have posted it last week, but it's okay. It will taste good whenever you make it. :) I can't wait to try this out!!***


Red, White, and Blue Granola Bars

I love the fourth of July. A time to celebrate the birth of our country, fireworks, and backyard BBQ's. Greasy hamburgers, mayonnaise based salads and heavy cakes and ice cream. Have you ever wished you could serve a fun and delicious dessert while still staying health conscience? This is the recipe for you!

It's a gooey chewy granola bar that is decadent but still packed with soluble fiber, Omega 3 and
antioxidants. With the help of a star shaped cookie cutter you have a very festive treat.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
3Tbsp ground flax seed
2 Tbsp Honey 2 cups olds fashioned oats
1 cup whole wheat all purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dried blueberries, cherries, and cranberries mixed
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preparation:

In a large bowl beat butter and brown sugar together till it crumbles.
Add egg, flax seed, and honey - mix till creamy.
In a small bowl mix oats, flour, cinnamon and baking soda together.
Mix dry ingredient with the wet mixture until it is just combined.
Fold in dried fruit and white chocolate chips.
Press mixture into a 11" x 7" pan and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, till set
and edges are just starting to brown.

When granola cools use a large star shaped cookie cutter and cut into shapes.
Break left over bits up and place into snack size bags for quick energy packs to go.
