I’ve been wanting to make homemade granola bars for a long time. It’s nice to know exactly what’s in your food, especially with something that you eat for energy and a healthy snack.
I’ve been intimidated up to this point by the large amount of ingredients people put in them. I just wanted a basic granola bar: simple to make and inexpensive.
If you want to make them…
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup chopped almonds (or other nuts)
1 cup dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
What you’ll need to do:
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients. Spread into a well-greased pan. Bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on your crunch preference (the longer it cooks, the crunchier it gets). Let the granola cool before you cut it, or it will fall apart.
