Peanut Butter and Honey Granola Bars

3 ¼ cups rolled oats (I like to use old-fashioned)
1 cup chopped nuts (I like to use raw almonds)
1 cup coconut
2/3 cup melted butter
¾ cup honey
¼ - ½ cup raisins
¼ - ½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
1 beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup chocolate chips

Mix oats, coconut and nuts with melted butter. Spread on baking sheet and toast at 350 for 20 minutes. In large bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Add cooled toasted ingredients to ingredients in large mixing bowl. Press into lightly greased 9 X 13 baking dish. Bake 22 minutes at 350. Cool slightly on wire rack before cutting.

Number of servings: 18

(I cut down the center of the long direction then cut 9 across on the short direction.)

Any type of dried fruit, nuts, flavoring or oats can be used. This is a good recipe to use up old bananas.
