Spring is in the air. The outdoors is calling. It’s time to go camping! What foods do you take so that they will remain fresh, yet nutritious? Granola Bars are an easy way to take vitamin nutrition supplements with you on a camping trip. These bars will have the taste of home recipes, because you made them at home ahead of time and packed them in an airtight container. It may not be “emirel’s recipe” but try them. You’ll like this free healthy recipe.

Granola Bars with yogurt

2 cups oats
2 cups barley flakes
1cup rye flakes
½ cup wheat germ
½ -1 cup whole-wheat flour
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
1½ cup chopped nuts
½ cup bran
1 cup chopped dates
1 1/2 cup raisins
¼-1/2 cup yogurt
1 ½ honey and molasses
2/3cup oil or melted butter
1 beaten egg

Heat honey mixture and oil in microwave for 30 seconds. Mix oats, barley, rye, wheat germ, flour, and bran together. Pour oil mixture, yogurt and egg into dry mix. Mix well. Add seeds, nuts, dates and raisins. Mix again. Adjust yogurt and flour to the mixture.
Spray a casserole dish and press mixture into the dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20–30 minutes. Cool and slice into bars. Makes 24 bars.

I used 1 box of granola cereal, 2 cups graham flour, 1 egg and 1 jar of yogurt and mixed with 2/3 cup heated honey and molasses and 1/3 cup oil. I baked the mixture in a black cast iron dutch oven over medium coals at the campsite. They turned out delicious!
