Almond-Raisin-Flaxseed Granola Bars

Submitted by: WALKIETALKIE


Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    The Basic Recipe for a 9 x 13 pan:
    4 cups rolled oats
    2 cups quick oats
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 cup raw almonds
    3 Tblsp canola oil
    2/3 cup pure maple syrup
    1/2 cup honey
    1/2 cup vanilla flavored almond milk
    1/2 cup shredded coconut
    non-stick cooking spray

    The Add-Ins for a 9 x 13 pan:
    1/4 cup whole flax seeds
    1/2 cup unpacked raisins

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350.

Process the rolled oats (not the quick oats) in your blender or food processor until they become flour-like. Mix this "oat flour" mixture with the ground cinnamon first so that you can spread the cinnamon througout the "flour" somewhat uniformly.

Set aside the coconut and in a large mixing bowl, add all the other dry ingredients to the "flour" mixture until all dry ingredients are uniformly incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients and mix well by hand. Add the wet mixture to the bowl with dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Spray the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 baking pan or dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Add the granola bar mix to the baking pan. With a sandwich bag that fits over your hand, a spatula, or a peice of hand-sized wax paper, press the mixture down into the baking pan or dish evenly. Spread the coconut evenly on top and lightly press onto the top of the granola mixture.

With a knife or pizza cutter, cut the whole sheet into 24 bars.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Let cool, cut again. When completely cool move to storage containers. I suggest storing in the refrigerator or freezer in air-tight containers.

I believe the oil in the flaxseeds makes these bars slightly more prone to spoilage if not preserved in either a refrigerator or freezer.
