Go Faster Granola Bar Recipe

Remember those granola bars that I’ve been raving about in my Sprout Right meal plan? The ones where I ate the whole tray?

Well, Lianne gave me permission to post the recipe for you guys because we all need a little crunchy-sweet in our lives.

They are super simple to make and the only “weird” thing is the brown rice syrup but you can find it in many healthy sections in grocery stores – I know Wegman’s and Whole Foods carry it.

 

Go Faster Granola Bars

You’ll Need

  • 1 cup Nature’s Path Millet Rice Flakes cereal
  • 1 cup whole rolled oats
  • ¾ cup dried fruit (raisins, chopped dates, apricots)
  • ¼ cup sunflower, pumpkin, or sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter or unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup almond butter

Preparation

  • Mix cereal flakes, rolled oats, dried fruit, seeds, and almonds in a bowl.
  • Gently heat brown rice syrup, coconut butter, and almond butter in a large saucepan until melted and smooth. Add dry ingredients to saucepan and quickly stir well to coat. Press into an 8-inch (2 L) square pan.
  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour and cut into squares. Store at room temperature. Makes about 16 bars.

 

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

  • Incredible!! I have am allergic to basically all sweeteners, but I CAN eat brown rice syrup so I am constantly on the hunt for recipes using it. These are amazing. If you're feeling a bit naughty, replace the fruit with unsweetened coconut and melt some chocolate chips on top (grain sweetened if you're feeling less naughty)…amazing!
    Thanks a million for the share!
