Granola Breakfast Bar Recipe
- 2/3 cup Granola
- 1/3 cup flax seed meal
- 2 medium bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup canola/rapeseed oil
- 1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, whatever you want)
- 2/3 cup chopped nuts (i use pecans but walnuts, peanuts or sunflower seeds will work)
- 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1-2 tablespoon of honey
- 1 egg white
- Combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. add mashed bananas, oil and sweetener (honey) and mix well until blended and mixture is sticky. (This part is messy, but worth it)
- (add a small amount of water if mixture isnt moist enough.)
- Shape dough into bars on a greased cookie sheet, making the bars about 1/3 inch thick. I would definitely recommend shaping all the bars at one time, because the longer the dough sits, the stickier it gets.
- Bake for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
