A Couple of Nut Free Granola Bars!

I'd wanted to post a trio, it just sounded better. But my third bar wasn't perfect. Delicious, but not perfect, so I'll keep working on it.

Bar #1

2 cups oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp coconut 
1 cup flour
1 cup date purée
1/4 cup coconut oil, butter, or Earth Balance
1/4 cup honey, agave, or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
Cinnamon to taste
Chocolate chips to taste

Mix it all, pour into a 9x13 parchment lined pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cut into bars, then cool.

Bar #2

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
3/4 cup dry sweetener ( brown sugar, coconut sugar)
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup milk or non- dairy milk of choice
1/4 cup chia
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate chips to taste

Mix wet ingredients, add dry. Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool and gently slice. It's delicate! Freeze individually wrapped.
