Description

Soft and chewy granola bars, perfect for a quick breakfast or snack.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • ½ cups Oat Flour
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed Meal
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 cup Shredded Sweetened Coconut
  • ¾ cups Dried Apricots, Chopped
  • ½ cups Slivered Almonds
  • ½ cups Honey
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted
  • ½ teaspoons Almond Extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 8″ square baking dish with foil, letting some hang over the edge, and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

In large bowl, combine oats, oat flour, brown sugar, flaxseed, salt, cinnamon, ginger, coconut, apricots, and almonds. Stir well.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together honey, butter, and almond extract. Pour over flour mixture and stir with a spatula. Keep mixing until all dry ingredients are moistened.

Pour into prepared baking dish and, with clean and sightly oiled fingers, press into the dish until tight and firmly packed. Bake 35 minutes in preheated oven. It will still be soft after it’s baked but will harden as it cools.

Cool for 30 minutes straight from oven, then place in refrigerator for about 1 hour before slicing. This helps keep them from crumbling.

Wrap individually or store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
