This homemade alternative to store-bought granola bars, is a good source of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Tasty and so simple to make! A quarter cup of raisins (not included here) also make a yummy addition!
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup raw almonds
1-1.5 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F.
Process 2 cups rolled oats in blender or food processor until they become flour-like. Mix “oat flour” with dry ingredients (except coconut) in a bowl.
Add all wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir until well combined.
Spray a small baking dish (about 5 inches x 12 inches, or similar) with non-stick cooking spray. Add mixture to the dish, pressing it down with a spatula. Sprinkle coconut on top.
With a knife, cut the whole sheet into 12 bars. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool, cut again, and store in an air-tight container for up to one week.
