Granola Bars

These taste more like "bars" than "granola." They are chewy and moist and sweet. I used Ashley Jorgensen's recipe as a basis and then changed a everything to my preferences. I make them a lot!

2 c coconut palm sugar
1 1/3 c natural, unsweetened peanut butter
1 c agave nectar
1 c butter, melted
4 tsp vanilla
6 c oats
4 tsp sesame seeds
2/3 c ground flax seed
1 c sunflower seeds
1/2 c chia seeds

In a very large bowl, mix ingredients together in the order listed (the melted butter will allow you to mix the peanut butter and agave).

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spread mixture into pan.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Let cool, then use a pizza cutter to cut into bars. Makes 48 bars.

They're great as snacks or dessert! I like to make a lot and stick some in the freezer.
