Homemade Granola Bars

Today I wanted to share this recipe for another old favorite of mine - homemade granola bars. I used to make these a LOT before I got married, but haven't made them in years. I'm so glad my mom reminded me of them so I could get back into making them.  They are pretty easy to make. Here is what you need:
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups whole wheat or white flour
1 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sesame seeds

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the water and oil together. When the water and oil are mixed as best you can, add immediately to dry mixture. Stir until combined. I usually use my hands to mix everything together - it will be pretty stiff. 
Lightly grease a cookie sheet and press dough into the pan as seen below. I use a lightly greased glass to press the dough evenly on the pan, as seen below.

Make sure you cut BEFORE baking. They can be very difficult to cut afterwards. They can be any size you want. Drizzle a small amount of honey on the top before you put them in the oven. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
I like to add a little more honey to the top when they come out of the oven or right before I eat them.
