Chewy Granola Bars

I rely in these kind of oats and nuts based breakfast bars when I need to drive in the mornings. I find it easy to munch my breakfast as bar than hurriedly gulp down anything else before getting onto the road. So these home made bars take off the additional load on my mind about all the unnecessary additives which are commonly found in store bought bars. 

I had earlier made similar kind of bars as Vegan Oatmeal Bars but I found these bars were easier to make and slightly mess free. So for Day of BM 25, check out these healthy breakfast bars.

Ingredients - 

Rolled Oats 1 cup
Oats Flour 6 Tbsp (approx 6 Tbsp of rolled oats pulsed to a coarse powder)
Rice Crispies cereal 1/4 cup (Optional)
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp (I forgot to add)
Salt 1/4 tsp
Dried fruit 2 Tbsp (I used dried sweetened cranberry)
Mixed Nuts 1/2 cup ( I used Cashew, Almond and Pistachio)
Coconut, shredded 2 Tbsp
Oil 2 tsp
Honey 1/4 cup
Chocolate chips (Optional)

Chewy Granola Bars

Method Of Preparation -

Grease a 8X6 oven safe dish and dust some flour and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except honey and oil, mix well.

Add oil and honey and mix well to get a sticky mixture.

With oiled fingers, pat the mixture evenly in the greased and flour dusted baking dish.

Make sure the mixture is packed tightly. I used an oiled pestle to uniformly press the mixture firmly.

I didn't have mini chocolate chips handy. So I grated a small piece of a commercial chocolate bar on the top.

Bake it for 20 min, switch off the oven and leave it in the oven for another 10 min.

Let it stay on the counter to cool. Cut them into required sized bars. Refrigerate for at least 30 min after which the bars come out easily.

Wrap them in cling wrap and store in an air tight container.

It makes a nutritious breakfast on the go combined with a glass of milk.
