IntroductionGranola bars that are jam packed with fibre and are super yummy! Granola bars that are jam packed with fibre and are super yummy!
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts, coarsely chopped (I used almonds and cashews!)
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup sesame seeds
3 tablespoons of wheat germ
1 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour (if you cannot have gluten, substitute with rice flour!)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup packed coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
optional: 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Line your container with parchment paper so the squares come out easier.
You can also freeze these. They last about 3-4 days in the fridge, but can last months in the freezer. I also like to eat them frozen! Try not to leave them outside the fridge for too long as they will become brittle and crumble.
Using a large wooden spoon, stir until all of the ingredients are wet, using your hands and bring it together like a dough. Press the dough into the pan, pressing with the back of the spoon to smooth the top. Place in the refrigerate for 90 minutes, then remove and cut into squares.
Serving Size: makes 12 squares
