In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees line or grease a 9 X 13 pan.
  2. Mix oats, nuts and coconut together spread even on baking pan. Toast for about 10 - 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 300 degrees. Once toasted mix with the wheat germ and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. While still warm add honey, vanilla, and salt then add fruit folding until even thru out.
  4. Bake for approximately 25 - 30 minutes or till nicely browned. Cool for 2 - 3 hours cutting with a serrated knife.
  5. I like to wrap individual bars with aluminum foil and store in the fridge. Can also break apart into a bowl and serve with warm milk poured over.
