  2. Toss oats, peanuts, coconut, raisins, sunflower and pumpkin seeds together in a bowl. In a pot over medium-low heat, stir peanut butter, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, spices and salt until melted.
  3. Pour melted mixture over oat base and stir until blended. Stir in egg and spread granola into prepared pan, patting down to make even. Bake for 30 minutes, then cool for 20 minutes before chilling for 2 hours.

These are fabulous, what a find! Warning, you cannot eat just one! My husband is a great snacker, well, now he really has something healthy and delicious to munch on, but we all love these! A little sweet but not overly so, scrumptious! Very easy to prepare, even though I gave mine to the next morning to cool down in the pan, they were still a little crumbly when I cut them. Not a problem, the crumbly bits I just put in my husbands breakfast muesli! (Or munch them!). Thanks for sharing a fabulous recipe, FrVanilla! Made for Veg'n Swap#10
