I am a huge fan of making my own granola, it is so much better than any store bought granola filled with excess sugar and processed ingredients. I just love these granola bars taken from www.theurbanbaker.com. They are delicious and the chocolate topping is optional, but oh so good!! Here is the recipe below:
24 ounces | 678 grams | 6 cups gluten free rolled oats 2 ounces | 57 grams | 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 2 ounces | 57 grams | 1/4 cup coconut oil 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt 6 ounces | 169 grams | 1 cup maple sugar 6 ounces | 170 grams | 1/2 cup honey 2 ounces | 56 grams | 1/4 cup apple juice 2 ounces | 56 grams | 1/4 cup molasses 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 ounces | 70 grams | 1 1/2 cup Brown Rice Puffed Cereal 4 ounces | 70 grams | 1 cup rice bran 2 ounces | 56 grams | 1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds 2 ounces | 56 grams | 1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped 8 ounces | 226 grams | 2 cups bittersweet chocolate, chopped and tempered
• preheat oven to 350*. spray two rimmed jelly roll pans and set aside. • in a large bowl, mix the oats, coconut oil, salt, and melted butter. divide mixture between the two prepared jelly roll pans. • toast oat for 15 – 20 minutes, rotating pans half way through the baking. let cool. • reduce oven temperature to 325*. line one rimmed jelly roll pan with heavy duty foil. lightly butter the foil. • in a heavy duty sauce pan, combine the maple sugar, honey, apple juice, and molasses. on medium heat, stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves and is all combined. off heat, add the vanilla. • in a very large bowl, mix the toasted oats, rice bran, sunflower seeds, and almonds. pour the warm sugar mixture over the dry ingredients and mix to combine. • press the mixture into your foil lined jelly roll pan and bake until the top is just starting to turn a rich golden brown, about 20 – 25 minutes. • place on a wire rack to cool completely. once cool, cut into desired size bars • while cooling, temper your chocolate. I am fortunate to have this machine. If you don’t this is a very simple video on how to temper chocolate. • once your chocolate is tempered, dip the bars into the chocolate or drizzle the chocolate over the bars set over a wire rack. • once chocolate is set and hardened, they are ready to eat. • these will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week. provided they last that long.
