Granola Bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, extra for greasing.
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or nut butter of your choice).
  • 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup (or golden syrup), plus 1 teaspoon extra.
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt.
  • 2 cups rolled oats (or quinoa flakes).
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut.
  • 3/4 cups coarsely chopped activated walnuts or almonds.
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds.
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds.
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds.
  • 1-2 tablespoon chia seeds.

Directions Granola

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. 2. Line a medium baking pan with baking paper and generously rub coconut oil on the paper and set aside. 3. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine coconut oil, nut butter, rice malt syrup and salt. 4. Cook on low heat stirring until well combined. 5. Remove from heat and add the oats, coconut, and half the nuts and seeds. Combine well.

    6. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top.

    7. Spread remaining nuts and seeds over the mixture and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of rice malt syrup.

    8. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes until golden brown around the edges and the middle is semi set. Check bars after 15 minutes to see if the top is browning too quickly. Cover with baking paper, if required.

    9. Remove from oven and cool completely in the pan. Lift from pan by pulling up on the baking paper.

    10. Transfer to a chopping board and cut into desired sized squares. Remove the baking paper.

Note: These muesli bars will keep in an airtight container or wrapped in baking paper then foil for a few days.
