Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup unsalted butter
    6 Tbsp. peanut butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    2/3 cup brown sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
    3 Tbsp. wheat germ
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 cup all-purpose flour

    4. Beat in the baking soda, salt and flour, scraping the bowl as needed.
    5. Reduce the mixer speed to low and blend in the granola, pecans, raisins and chocolate chips, mixing only enough to distribute these ingredients.
