Granola Breakfast Bars Category: Recipes

Yesterday I came across this recipe via tastespotting. Now I’ve been on the look out for something like this for ages and as we’d made some granola a few weeks ago, I had the ingredients in to give it a go.

It was very quick and easy – I adapted the recipe & amounts to what we had in and I didn’t want too much sauce to glue it all together…

It went something like this:

  • 450ml cups of oats
  • a good shake of oat bran
  • 80ml packet of mixed seeds (sesame, pumpkin and sunflower, i think!)
  • 100ml cup of desicated coconut
  • 150ml honey
  • 150mlsoft brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 50g butter
  • pinch salt

(sorry everything is in ml – from the American cups, i used a jug with cups conversion)

  1. Put oven on 200°c
  2. Measure out oats, oat bran and seeds on baking tray and pop in the oven for 10/15 minutes but keep moving the oats around every couple of minutes
  3. Whilst oats are toasting, put the honey, sugar, vanilla essence, butter and salt in a pan and warm though until melted
  4. When the oats are toasted, transfer to a mixing bowl and the sultanas and coconut
  5. Pour over the ‘sauce’ and mix thoroughly
  6. Line a dish with greaseproof paper and put the granola mixture in, pack down tightly
  7. After 3 hours you can take it out and cut into pieces

Ours made enough for us to have for breakfast at work next week – as we have been making an early start due to some 12 weeks of roadworks enroute.
