1 cup honey
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
2 2/3 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup wheat germ
2 cups mix-ins in -- any combination of
--- -- the following:
2 cups coconut
2 cups raisins
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups butterscotch chips
2 cups peanut butter chips
2 cups unsalted peanuts
2 cups miniature mandms
2 cups finely chopped dried fruit such as dates
2 cups apricots -- apples,

Preparation / Directions:

METHOD: Mix honey and peanut butter until well blended. It might help to warm the honey in the microwave about 20 seconds so that it is not so stiff. Stir in oats, flour, wheat germ and mix-ins. If mixture seems too dry, add water 1 Tablespoon at a time. If it is too sticky, add oats 1 Tablespoon at a time. Mixture should be slightly sticky, but still easily spread in a pan with greased fingers. Press into a 9x13 pan lightly greased. Bake at 350 until barely browned. DO NOT OVERBAKE! Cut while warm into desired sized bars. When completely cool, remove from pan with a greased spatula. Wrap each bar separately in plastic wrap and then store in a zip bag or air-tight container. These freeze extremely well. Save the crumbs for ice cream topping. Makes about 2 dozen bars.
