Description

I am a total sucker for granola bars. I always eat them. I act like they are diet bars and it’s my only meal and then I eat four of them and realize I should have just had a regular meal. These granola bars are so good!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • ½ cups Sliced Almonds
  • ½ cups Wheat Bran
  • ½ cups Shredded Coconut
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ cups Honey
  • ¼ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • ¼ cups Chopped Apricots
  • ¼ cups Chopped Prunes

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and butter an 8 by 12-inch baking dish on all sides and the bottom and line the bottom with parchment paper so the granola bars are sure to not stick.

2. Toss the oats, almonds, wheat bran, and coconut together on a sheet pan and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until just lightly browned. Do not leave this in too long because it burns fast. Make sure to keep an eye on it at all times.

3. While the dry ingredients toast, place the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for one minute at a low boil, then remove from heat and set aside.

4. When you remove the pan of toasted dry ingredients from the oven, lower the temperature to 300 F. Scoop all your toasted dry ingredients into a large bowl and pour the wet mixture over the toasted mix. Add the chopped apricots and prunes and stir well. You can always substitute different fruit.

5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Wet your fingers and lightly press the mixture down into the pan. I line the top with parchment paper and use another pan to press down really firmly so my bars are super packed in.

6. Bake at 300 F for 20-22 minutes, until light golden brown. Remove pan from the oven and set it on a rack. Cool completely before slicing into bars. Serve at room temperature.
