Submitted by: LISAINMS

Introduction

Soft and chewy granola bars that can be altered with different fruits, chocolate chips and nuts. If you like a crunchy bar, cook at 325 temperature for 25 minutes instead.

Ingredients

    2 tbsp prune puree
    2 tbsp canola oil
    2 tbsp honey
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 cups whole oats
    1/4 cup wheat bran
    1 scoop (28 grams) whey protein
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 cup Craisins, roughly chopped
    1/4 cup almonds, chopped

Directions

Makes 16 2" bars

Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8" square pan with foil and spray with oil.

Put all wet ingredients in a bowl and stir to blend.

Process oats until it is a slightly chunky flour. You should see some oat grains.

Add all dry ingredients to the bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined. It will be crumbly, but will clump if pressed.

Pour into prepared. Using wax paper or a silpat, press the mix flat into the pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until browning on the edges. I use a convection oven at 325, which is the equivalent of a standard oven at 350. Bars will be soft baked at 12 min. Bake 20-25 min at 325 if you want more of a crunchy bar.

Remove from oven. Carefully slide foil out of pan onto cutting board. Cut into bars while hot, then allow to cool. Store in an air tight container or wrap individually in plastic wrap and keep in the freezer. Makes a great snack or eat 2 for breakfast on the go!
