  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix oats, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, sesame seeds, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Combine vanilla extract, peanut butter, and honey in a separate bowl until they are well mixed. Add peanut butter mixture to oat mixture and stir until dough begins to thicken and dry ingredients are incorporated. Add chopped fruit, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Continue to stir until the dough sticks together in big stiff lumps and is uniformly mixed.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting and serving.

Congratulations for being a cancer survivor ~ & getting to live near Mt. Rainier! I love this recipe. It is great as is or can be changed so many ways; nuts, fruits, grains. I used pistachios, craisins, dry cherries, pecans, ground flax seed & added 2 cups rice krispies.


These are great, Alison! While I was mixing this recipe, I kept thinking back to the time I hiked Mt Ranier in '94. Congratulations on your journey! I enjoyed your video that goes with this recipe. These bars have nice flavor. I used almonds, pumpkin seeds, raisins and cranberries. I used oat bran in lieu of wheat germ. If you cut into these bars when they are warm, they are very crumbly. Wait until they cool, and they are perfect granola bars!


These were awesome! I also added Reese's peanut butter chips since my boys like lots of peanut butter. They said "Mom, don't ever buy the bars at the store again. These are awesome!" They are more filling and taste so much better than the store bought ones.
