Pumpkin Granola Bars with Salted Peanuts (1984)

  • 2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup chopped salted peanuts
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • 3/4 cup Libby's solid pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large bowl, combine oats,, nuts, brown sugar, coconut, and wheat germ.  

Add pumpkin, melted butter, and egg to mixture.  Mix until all dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened.  Spread mixture into a lightly greased 15-1/2x10-1/2-inch jelly roll pan.  

Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown.  While warm, cut into 1-1/2x3-inch bars.  Yields 30 bars.  For crisper bars, removed from pan to wire rack, and cool completely before serving.
