Whole Wheat Granola Bars {Recipe}

I have been searching for a tasty whole wheat granola bar for our family.  
We love granola bars and eat quite a few of them for breakfast and occasionally for a snack.
Buying a descent granola bar can be quite expensive (not to mention even the best store bought option is not as good as cooking your own).

These had fresh milled wheat, flax seed, and yummy chocolate chips to satisfy my sweet tooth.

 I love having these on hand to grab when we are having a fast-paced morning and I don't have time to cook oatmeal, pancakes, or muffins.

These bars don't have all the icky, gumminess that you would find in box brands.  They are healthy, quick to make, and a good alternative to the store bars.

I have a banana muffin recipe that I need to share.  I absolutely love it and it makes quite a few, so you can freeze them for later.  I will have to get on that one... for now, enjoy these granola bars!

    1. I am sure you could use just regular cooking oil. It won't have the health benefits, though!
