Description

These crunchy and lightly sweet granola bars are low in sugar and high in protein thanks to whole grains and seeds. I love the combination of tart cranberries and very dark chocolate, but raisins would work as well. Keep these stashed in your freezer this holiday season for easy grab-and-go snacks and breakfasts when things get hectic.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup oatmeal
  • ¾ cup crisp brown rice cereal
  • ½ cup oat flour (grind whole oats in a blender to form a flour)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup cranberries, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup 85% dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a bowl, add together all dry ingredients.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add liquid coconut oil and honey. Microwave for 20-30 seconds. The mixture needs to be warm enough the honey is very thin, but not warm enough to melt the chocolate.
  • Pour the coconut oil/honey mixture into the dry ingredients, and mix until there is no dry flour left.
  • Press into the bottom of a 8x8 pan. I line my pan with baking paper for the easiest cutting, but greasing the pan will also work. I use a pastry roller to make an even, packed layer, but a pint glass would work as well.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the top of the granola bars are lightly browned.
  • Cool completely, and then refrigerate until the granola bars are chilled. Cut with a very sharp knife for best results.
  • Store bars in the freezer for up to 1 month. I like to eat them right out of the freezer- they are crunchy when frozen and are more of a chewy bar at room temperature.
