No-Bake Oatmeal Bars

* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1/2 cup orange juice
* 3 tablespoons wheat germ
* 2 cups rolled oats
* 1 cup flake coconut
* 1/2 cup chopped nuts
* 1/4 cup sesame seeds

Here is a recipe for no bake cookies. It does say nuts, but skip them and add more seeds if you want. Some kids with peanut allergies also have other nut allergies, and many younger kids simply don’t like nuts.

Melt the butter in a medium sized sauce pot or microwave it in a glass bowl, 10 seconds at a time and stirring between each cycle. Add the brown sugar and orange juice and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the wheat germ, oats, coconut, nuts and sesame seeds and mix well. Spread the mixture into a 9″ square glass baking dish and refrigerate until hard. Cut into squares and eat!
