    So often all the food we take when hiking or camping is a packaged meal or bar from the local grocery store. But homemade is so much better as then you at least know what ingredients are in the food your eating. This is a favorite recipe that is sure to please everyone as it allows you to choose what additions you want in the mix. At home or on the trail this homemade granola bar is one of the best. Enjoy!

    1 cup quick cooking or old fashioned oats

    1 cup spoon-size shredded wheat cereal

    1 cup walnuts

    1½ cups dried fruit (choose one or more of the following: dried plums/prunes, raisins, cherries, apricots, cranberries)

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon salt o 2 large eggs

    1/4 cup honey

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil or coat an 8 x 8-inch baking pan or dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
    2. Place the oats, shredded wheat, walnuts, dried fruit, cinnamon, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped (the fruit should be the size of a dried pea or lentil).
    3. Whisk together the eggs, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl until well blended. Add the oat mixture and chocolate chips and stir to combine.
    4. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan, and flatten gently with the back of a spoon or rubber spatula. 5. Bake about 18 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown. Let cool completely in pan before slicing into twelve 2 x 2½- inch bars.

    That sounds good! It would make for good rewarding treat for hiking. She is right about the store bought granola bars, they are basically sugary candy bars. Thanks for idea.
