They're healthy, soft and chewy, and oh so good!
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup or honey
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup raisins
2 tbsp sesame seeds (I omit)
2/3 cup peanut butter
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup wheat germ / flax seed
1/3 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp molasses (can use in place of sugar too if desired...)
Blend sugar, syrup, margarine and vanilla.
Add the rest. Mix well and press into 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350F for 15 min.
I play around with ingredients, I omit sugar in place of molasses...
add crushed peanuts or almonds... skip raisins... I used to make it without molasses, but I find it adds a richness I'd now rather not do without...
