Granola Bars

A mixture for granola bars is a blank canvas waiting for your creativity. I added dried apricots and toasted walnuts, but any combination of dried fruits and nuts is acceptable.

Egg 1 large
Light brown sugar, firmly packed ½ cup
Vegetable oil 1 Tbsp
Ground cinnamon ½ tsp
Vanilla extract ½ tsp
A pinch of salt
Rolled (old-fashioned) oats ¾ cup
All purpose flour 2 Tbsp
Dried apricots, coarsely chopped ½ cup
Chopped walnuts ¼ cup
