I've made muffins and scones but I've never made my own granola bars before! So I thought I'd give it a try....
3 1/2 cups of oats
1 cup dried fruit
1 cup of nuts any kind
1/4 cup slivered almons
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup brown sugar1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
I thought this recipe was really great because you can play around with the ingredients alot. I used cherries for my dried fruit and I used almonds and walnuts for my nut portion. You could even add chocolate chips for something extra!
I also decided to use agave syrup instead of honey. You can find agave syrup at any grocery store and it's sometimes healthier to use, although it doesn't hold as strong as honey.
This recipe is really easy, all you have to do is combine all the ingredients you choose to use and press into a 15 x 10 pan. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and let cook for 20 minutes. Let the granola cool, cut it into bars, and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee.
Not only is this recipe easy, it's also healthy!
