These are good. The recipe doesn't say when to add the wheat germ, but I saw it on TV. You add it when you add the fruit. Also, I substituted dried mangos instead of apricots.
Sometimes, even though your husband is awesome in the kitchen and tells you they are the same, you should listen to the small voice in your head that says wax paper is not the same as parchment and not be lazy and just go to the store. If you don't listen to that voice, wax paper could become glued to the bottom of your yummy granola bars and you end up wearing bandaids from trying to slice the wax paper off.
