These are pretty tasty and cost effective, given granola bars without trans fat or dye are about $3.99-4.99.  I get the majority of the ingredients at Sunflower in their bulk section.  Also, where I have almond slices and cranberries, feel free to experiment just use the same measurement.  I’ve used chocolate covered peanuts and even added peanut butter.  The almond/cranberry is probably the healthiest though.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 c oats
1 c almond slices
1/2 c honey
1/3 c brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c dried cranberries

I put this all in my bread machine and just let it mix it up.  You can also do it by hand, just toss all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Depending on how thick you want them will dictate the pan size you use.  Spray the pan lightly and put in granola mixture.  Press down to flatten and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
