Granola Bar Recipe - YUM!

4 cups rolled oats
2 cup quick-oats
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
1/2 cup almonds
1 1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup coconut (optional)
dried fruit (eg: dried apricots cut up or raisins or chocolate chips)

Process 4 cups of ROLLED OATS to make them into a flour-like texture.
In a large bowl combine powdered oats, quick oats, cinnamon, salt and almonds.
In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. (Add dried fruit/mix ins if desired).
Use a spatula to pat into a baking dish (I grease mine with coconut oil).
Sprinkle coconut on top (if desired).

Cut into bars FIRST and then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Cool and then re-cut them. Enjoy! Yields about 24 bars.

HI! I come to your blog via Stacy and Angela. I have a question about this recipe (hopefully not a dumb one), as I really want to make it. 1st step is to process 2 c of rolled oats. 2nd step is to put powdered oats and quick oats (etc) together. Do I also put the 2 remaining cups of UNpowdered rolled oats in at this time? Thanks!

Nancy - SO sorry. I made a typo!! It is supposed to be process 4 c of rolled oats. SO SORRY about that! (: M

Hey Mish, when you process them do you just use a food processor? Is that what works best?

Mish said...

Stacy - yes, a food processor or a blender will both work well. Just as long as the oats get to be a powdery texture. I have to say that I've really enjoyed the batch I made last week... I added raisins, dried apricot pieces (cut into small bits) and goji berries.
