“Power packed, fruity and nutty. Better than store-bought granola bars. Use any kind of dried fruit e.g. - chopped dates, chopped apricots, chopped prunes, etc.”

Fantastic granola bars, and fairly easy to make. I suggest that you flatten in into the pan ASAP when it's finished cooking, otherwise they end up falling apart at the drop of a hat. I've made it with various combinations of dried fruit.



We really enjoyed this granola. I couldn't get the bars to stay together, so I just dumped it all into a Tupperware canister and used it as cereal in the morning. It had a great flavor (I used dried cranberries instead of the cherries and dates, and I added walnuts). I've made it twice.



I modified these alot, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 molassess, so its not as sweet. Then 2 cups oats, 1 cup sliced almonds, 1/2 cup wheat bran, 1/2 cup flaxseed, 1/2 cup raw sunflower seed, 1/2 cup textured veggie protein, 1 cup dried goji, 1/2 cup craisins. definitely simmer longer to help get tehm to stick together. easy to make and proabbly even btter with more practise.
