Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Here is another healthy, yummy recipe I found at Food and Whine. The original recipe used raisins, but raisins are not allowed in granola bars at my house because my husband hates raisin. Sad. So instead, I used chocolate chips. These granola bars are healthy and taste like it - they definitely need chocolate chips or dried fruits to add in some moisture and pops of flavor. I ate mine with a smudge of peanut butter on top,  a banana on the side, and big ol' glass of skim milk. Snack perfection!

1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 egg
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine apple sauce, maple syrup and egg. In a larger bowl combine dry ingredients. Add in the wet ingredients and stir until fluffy and combined. 
Shape into bars and place on greased pan (I use cooking spray). **Note: You could also spread into a 9X13 pan and then cut into bars, probably easier that shaping and will make more bars than the measly 8 I got!!** Bake for 15 minutes and remove from pan immediately.
