Granola Bars

Granola Bars

2 cups oats
1 cup flour- (I use brown rice flour)
1/2 cup coconut sugar (or you can use brown sugar)
1/2 cup raisins, or other dried fruit (dried cherries are awesome in this)
1/4 ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 black strap molasses
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
OPTIONAL: A handful of nuts, chocolate chips, banana chips, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds etc.

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 in. pan with parchment paper then coat with a little oil. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl: oats, flour, sugar, fruit, salt, cinnamon, and any other optional ingredients you choose to add. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients: oil, honey, egg and vanilla. Pour wet mix into dry mix and stir until blended. Press evenly into the pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely then turn or lift out onto a cutting board. Remove the parchment paper and cut into bars. Wrap individually in plastic wrap.
I hope you give these a try. Here is a picture of the finished product. I cut smaller bars for the kids.
