Chewy Granola Bars

These are a great addition to any sack lunch, make them in big batches and freeze them for convenience.

2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
2/3 cup butter melted
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar firmly packed
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped dried fruits (preferably berries)
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/3 cups granola cereal or quick cooking oats
powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. For crust, mix together 2 cups flour, 2/3 c brown sugar, and 1/2 cup walnuts; blend in melted butter until crumbs form. Press into 2 greased (or foil) 9x13 inch pans. Bake for 10 minutes until light golden brown. Meanwhile in a large bowl, beat eggs until fluffy. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 cup brown sugar then stir in vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt, and then add the dried berries, nuts, coconut, and granola. Pour over partially baked crust and bake for 20 to 25 minutes longer, or until bars are set. Cool for about an hour then cut into bars and roll in or sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Slice and place in zip top freezer bags or wrap bars individually in plastic wrap for lunchboxes.

"I might learn how to cook yet with all this software of yours. You can't believe how much it has helped. I've had friends come over (I'm just a single guy with a dog - but looking for the right woman) and rave about the meals I prepared for them. It's not all that hard if you just follow the directions. In the end I have to tell them my secret, it's not talent - it's your software.

Oh well, the food is still delicious. Now if I could just figure out how to use the dishwasher.
