Author/Submitted by: Southern Living
Servings: 24
Categories: Bars / Desserts / Nuts

2 1/4  c  quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1  c  coconut flakes
1/4  c  wheat germ
1/4  c  butter or margarine, plus 2 tablespoons
1/4  c  brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2  c  honey
1/2  c  peanut butter
1 1/2  ts  vanilla extract
1/2  c  unsalted peanuts, chopped
1/2  c  raisins

Combine oats, coconut, and wheat germ in a greased 9-inch square pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside. Combine butter, sugar, and honey in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and add peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until peanut butter melts. Pour over oat mixture. Add peanuts and raisins, and stir well. (Mixture will seem dry at first; continue stirring until moist.) Press mixture firmly into pan with greased fingertips. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.
