Ingredients (makes 10) 

  • 1 cup nuts and seeds of choice I used

  • 1/2 cup each of chopped almonds, walnuts, pistachios and sunflower seeds

  • 1 cup oats

  • ½ cup flaked coconut toasted

  • ½ cup dried fruit of choice I used dried cranberries

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ cup creamy almond butter

  • ⅓ cup maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Chocolate Icing- 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1 tbsp cacao powder, 1 tbsp maple syrup


Method 

  1. Line a square pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the nuts and seeds, oats, flaked coconut, dried fruit, chia seeds and cinnamon.

  3. Stir together the almond butter, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a small microwave-safe bowl or liquid measuring cup. Microwave the mixture for 30 seconds – it should be hot and pour easily. Stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the almond butter/maple syrup mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated.

  4. Pour the sticky mixture into the prepared pan and then use a flat-bottomed drinking glass, measuring cup, or spatula to press the mixture into a firm, even layer in the pan.

  5. Chocolate Icing- Combine ingredients into a pan over low heat and stir to combine. Pour over the bars and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cutting into 10 granola bars.

  6. Store the granola bars in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for a few months.
