Saturday Sales & Chewy Granola Bars

Be sure to visit last week’s sales and it is the final day to take our Sunday Poll.

FoodSaver is having a spring sale that can’t be beat! Their Foodsaver Vac 1075 has been marked down from a whopping $129.99 to $69.99. That saves you 60 bucks!

1-800 Contacts has a sale going on how where they are offering $40-80 rebates on all of their top brands of contacts. $50 or over spent will land you free shipping too!

Entertainment Book free! If you reserve yourself a copy of the 2007 book, you can get the 2006 book for free. There are lots of great coupons for all of your dining, shopping, and travel needs. These make a wonderful gift too.

Saturday Snack: I make these every couple of weeks or so. It is a very versatile recipe because you can substitute the chocolate chips for anything you like (dried fruits, peanut butter chips, nuts, etc..). Recently I substituted one cup of the oatmeal for one cup of Rice Krispies and that made the perfect combination for our family. If you like a healthier granola bar, then stick with just the oats. If you are in a pinch, you can substitute the honey with lite corn syrup (equal amounts).

Chewy Granola Bars

4.50 cups oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup honey
¼ cup peanut butter (creamy)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease on 9x13” pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all of the ingredients (minus the chocolate chips). Stir in chocolate chips. Press into pan & bake for 18-22 minutes. Let cool for ten minutes, and then cut into bars.
