Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Bars

Note: check yield, this is intended to be eaten over multiple days
  • 2 C rolled oats (quick cooking ok)
  • 1 C sliced almonds
  • 1 (14-oz) pkg. Pillsbury Banana Quick Bread and Muffin Mix
  • 1 C raisins
  • ½ C toasted wheat germ
  • 1 C chunky peanut butter
  • ½ C oil
  • ½ C water
  • ¼ C honey
  • 2 eggs

1. Heat oven to 350. Spread oats and almonds in ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until oats and almonds are toasted, stirring occasionally.
2. In large bowl, combine toasted oats and almonds, quick bread mix and raisins; mix well. Add all remaining ingredients; mix well.
3. Spray same baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread batter evenly in sprayed pan.
4. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool completely.

Approximately 24 bars

Robyn's notes: I make these as lunch bars/granola-type bars for him so that we feel confident about the ingredients in them, instead of the assortment of things in store-bought bars. I don't make this particular one all that often, because I can't always find the Quick Bread and Muffin Mix.
