    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (barley flakes, rolled outs, crisped rice, wheat germ, flour, almonds, flax meal, and coconut flakes.
    3. 3
      At a low heat, slowly melt the sugar on the stove in a sauce pan, stirring regularly (you can substitute additional honey and molasses for this, if it's too much work, but I couldn't get the "stickiness" I wanted without melting the sugar. Once the sugar s melted through, immediately add the melted butter followed by the honey, agave nectar, and molasses. Stir in the sunflower butter, vanilla extract, and liquid lecithin. Once your wet ingredients are well combined, pour them into the dry ingredients.
    4. 4
      Mix together with a wooden spoon until all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Finally, add the chocolate chips.
    5. 5
      Spread into 2 greased 8x11 pans. Use a glass to smooth out the mixture making it uniform in thickness. Feel free to add additional chocolate chips at this time if they don't seem to be evenly dispersed. I just sprinkle them where I want them and then roll them into the mixture with the glass.
    6. 6
      Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minute.
    7. 7
      For best results, let cool in the greased pans for 12-24 hours before cutting. Cut them into bar form and they are ready to eat!

      I've been looking for a granola-like bar to make. While it takes some effort to make them the end result is delicious. The only trouble I ran into was finding the liquid lecithin but I did and it all worked out. These are great! I'm keeping this in my cookbook.
