Healthy Homemade Granola Bars










I am always on the look out for easy, wholesome granola bars. They are a staple in my pantry, and between my kids and hubby, I can't seem to keep enough of them in the house.
So, I figured it was time to try and make some from scratch. 
I have been trying to cut out processed foods for a while now, and love making our own granola, and granola bars  for my kids. These are a great quick breakfast, or healthy snack for school or office.
Best of all, when you make them yourself, you know exactly what goes in them and you can customize them to suit your tastes.

These granola bars are easy to make and deliciously chewy and crispy. 

Little tip: If you store them in the freezer or fridge, they stay crispier then stored at room temperature ;)





Granola Bars

Ingredients:

1/2 cup/125 ml Water
2 cups/500g Honey

3 cups rolled Oats 
1/4 cup tablespoons Almonds(coarsely chopped)

2 tablespoon Sunflower Seeds
2 tablespoon Coconut (shredded)
4 tablespoons Flax Seeds
2 cups dried Cranberries,Raisins,Apricots,Dates
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Salt


Directions:


In a pot heat the Water with the Honey.Let cool.

In separate bowl toss Oatmeal with Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Flax Seeds, and Coconut. Add Cinnamon and Salt.

Chop Cranberries,Raisins, Apricots, and Dates.  Then add water/honey mixture to oats. Mix well. 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour Oat mixture evenly onto sheet. Place another on top and press firmly down(it works the best with a Dough roller).

Bake at 320°C ca 20-30 minutes.


Cut Bars while still warm to prevent crumbling.


Enjoy,
