Granola Bars

I made this on a whim - I saw the recipe and realized I had all the ingredients. Really good, especially since school is starting soon. You are really supposed to cut them into bars, but I had a hard time doing that so I kind of just tore them into bars.

3 c quick-cooking oats
1 c chopped almonds
1 egg
1/2 c unsalted butter, melted
1/2 c honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c sunflower kernels
1/2 c flaked coconut
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon.

Preheat oven to 350. Combine oats and almonds on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 15 min or until toasted, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, combine egg, butter, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in in sunflower kernels, coconut, cranberries, brown sugar, and cinnamon. After oat mixture is done, stir that in as well. Press into baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 13-18 min or until set and edges are lightly browned. Cook on wire rack and cut (or tear!) into bars.
