Pumpkin Granola Bars

A snack your kids will love. Avoids all the preservatives and other ingredients in store-bought bars too.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped peanuts, walnuts, or sunflower seeds
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup butter at room temperature
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbs molasses
2 Tbs shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 Tbs grated orange rind

Directions:

  1. Blend the pumpkin, egg, butter, honey, and molasses in a mixing bowl or food processor.
  2. Add the oats, nuts, coconut, wheat germ, cinnamon, and orange rind, and mix well.
  3. Spread this mixture into a lightly greased 15 1/2-by-10 1/2-inch jelly-roll pan.
  4. Bake in a 350F oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. While still warm, cut into 3-by-1 1/2-inch bars.
  6. For very crisp bars, remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely.

Yield: about 30 bars.
