Chewy No Bake Granola Bars

I adapted this recipe from http://amy-newnostalgia.blogspot.com/  These are very good and quick to whip up!  -Kristin

4 Tablespoons butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2-1/2 cups dry oatmeal
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds  
1/2 cup Craisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips 

  • In a saucepan, begin to melt the butter and then add the brown sugar and honey.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower the heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, except for the chocolate chips.  Stir well.
  • Then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Press the mixture into a 9x13 pan and set in the fridge until firm, about 15 minutes.
