Today Etain and I decided to make some granola bars. We thought we would share the recipe as they turned out to be very yummy.
4 cups Wheat Free Organic Oats
2 cups Raw Long Shredded Coconut
1 TBSP Ground Cinnamon
Preheat Oven To 325.
Mix oat, coconut and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread over 2 large bar pans or cookie sheets and bake for 15 min, or until lightly browned.
Turn oven down to 300.
Melt in a small pot:
1 1/4 Cup Organic Raw Honey
2 TSP Pure Vanilla Extract
3 TBSP Butter
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
2 Cups Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
Remove oats and coconut from the oven and dump into a bowl. Pour the honey mixture over and stir together with sunflower seeds and chocolate chips.
Cover a large bar pan with parchment paper and grease with butter. Pour the mixture onto the large bar pan (10×15 inches) and pat down. Return to the oven and bake for 25 minutes. When done, let cool for about 3 hours before cutting into squares.
Adding nuts and dried fruit like maybe some cranberries would be delicious as well. Since my kids are not allowed to take anything with nuts to school I skipped that step this time.
