RECIPE: healthy granola bar recipe please

posted by: sugar_and_spice on 01.11.2007 at 12:41 am in Recipe Exchange Forum

I'm looking for a healthy snack that is quick and easy for those days when I am on the go. It would be a double bonus if it was low fat too.

Thank you

NOTES:

I am not sure that this is what you are looking or not. But I like this dish. It is very easy to make and tastes great. Here is the recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups oats
3/4 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup peanuts, crushed
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
4 Tbsp butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
Approximately 8 oz. dried fruit

Directions:

Crush your peanuts and take them in a plastic bag smash them with a heavy hammer measuring cup or saucepan.
Then, mix the peanuts, oats, wheat germ, and sunflower seeds in a baking dish with sides. Toast them in the oven for 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes so that they dont get burned.

In the Saucepan put the brown sugar, honey, butter, vanilla, and salt and heat them and stirring constantly. After completion of your grains and nuts toasting, mix them together in a big bowl. You make sure that glue gets all over everything. Now put your granola mixture into your prepared baking dish.

Now fold over the sides of the waxed paper or add a sheet on top, and PRESS HARD all over the granola. You want to compact it together so that your bars wont fall apart when you cut them. Wait 2-3 hours or until the granola has totally cooled. Its time to cut your granola into whatever size bars you like. I hope you enjoy the dish.
