Last Week’s Granola Bar Recipe – Basic Foundation

Granola Bars

2 ½ cups rolled oats
½ cup shredded coconut
2 cups mixed nuts, chopped
1 cup mixed seeds
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup chocolate chips, optional
1 cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup honey
½ cup nut butter
½ cup brown sugar, or unrefined cane sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 22 x 22 cm tin with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips and cranberries.

In a medium sized saucepan over a low heat, mix together the salt, cinnamon, vanilla, honey, nut butter and sugar until smooth.

Pour the syrup mixture into the dry mixture and mix through until all the dry mixture has been coated by the syrup.

Press the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until the top is golden. Allow the muesli slab to cool in the tin before cutting into bars. Store in an airtight container.
