Healthy Granola Bars

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:14 am by DivineShantiYoga

Oh my goodness, I just made some of these, and must share. They taste fabulous! And filled with fiber, omega 3’s, anti-oxidants, and no artificial additives, preservatives, or any other bad things. Make a batch, heck – double it, cut into squares, wrap each square individually and store in the freezer. Ready to go whenever you need one. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup dry muesli (I used blueberry muesli from Trader Joes)

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup raw, unsalted sunflower seeds

1/4 cup raw, unsalted sesame or flax seeds

1/4 cup raw, unsalted almonds, chopped

1/3 cup sultana raisins

1/3 cup dried cranberries

2 egg whites, lightly beaten

3 Tbsp. dark agave nectar

3 Tbsp. organic honey

3 Tbsp. safflower oil (I used coconut oil, and worked well also)

Pinch of nutmeg

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat Oven to 350′. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, and set aside. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, agave nectar, oil and egg. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Mixture should be lumpy. Press mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes. The edges will be lightly brown. When cool, cut into bars.
