Whitewater Granola Bars

Source: Whitewater Cooks by Shelley Adams

We had these bars on our recent trip to Canada. They were packed in our lunch each day when we were biking, canoeing or hiking in the Whitehorse area. I was so excited to find the recipe in this book. I have made them several times now and everyone asks for the recipe-even my bootcamp instructor!!

1C butter
1 1/2 C peanut butter
1 1/2 t vanilla
2 C brown sugar
1 C corn syrup
6 C rolled oats
1 C coconut, toasted
1 C sunflower seeds, toasted
1 C sesame seeds, toasted
2 C chocolate chips, or 2 cups of add ins to your liking (I have used 1C chocolate chips and 1C chopped almonds, OR 1C chocolate chips and 1C raisins, options are endless)

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a skillet or 350 oven toast the coconut and seeds (Trader Joes sells already toasted sunflower and sesame seeds, set askide to cool. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, vanilla and brown sugar. Add corn syrup and then mix in the remaining ingredients. Press into greased 12x18 cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes (mine took 25) or until golden brown. Let cool slightly and cut while still warm.
