Great Harvest Trek Bars

This is for my friends that ran the Cedar City Half Marathon.  The post-race food was a chewy granola-type bar, an orange slice, and half a banana.  These bars were awesome, and we found out they were from Great Harvest.  After a bit of searching and some trial and error, I think I found a recipe that tastes pretty darn similar.  Switch it up and try different variations.  I wrapped some up in tin foil to send with Clay to work or a good on-the-go snack for the kiddos.  The original recipe can be found at  
The recipe below is just a little different.

Chewy Energy Bars

2 1/2 c oats
1 c honey
1 c peanut or other nut butter
1/4 c white choc chips
1/4 c millet
1/4 c puffed millet
1/4 c flax seed
1/4 c cranberries
1/4 c c raw sunflower seeds
1/4 c chia seeds
1/4 c dried currants

Combine nut butter and honey, mix well.  Add one ingredient at a time, mixing well after each.  Bake at 350 in a 13 x 9 greased pan for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool completely before trying to cut.  You can try different ingredients for everything below the nut butter.  Just don't exceed a total of 2 cups.  Other variations: wheat germ, protein powder, flax meal, raisins, or dried chopped apricots, pumpkin seeds, etc.
