I've got a few requests for this... So here is the recipe for my dairy free, gluten free, high fibre granola bars.
100 ml rapeseed oil
100 g honey
250 g rolled oat
100 g dried stoned dates
50 g walnuts
50 g peacans
25 g sesame seeds
25 g golden linseeds
20 g desiccated coconut
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Small pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to160 oC / Gas mark 3
Line a medium baking tray with grease proof paper
In a small pan, cook the honey and rapeseed oil together for a few minutes until the honey caramelises. Let the mixture cool.
In a food processor, blend the dates until they form a sticky doughy ball
Crush the walnuts and pecans using a mortar and pestle or a rolling pin
In a separate large mixing bowl, mix all your dry ingredients and blended dates together. Use your fingers to combine the mixture
Pour the oil and honey mixture into the mixing bowl, continue to mix until all the dry ingredients are soaked evenly
Transfer the granola mix into the baking tray
Using the back of a tablespoon, press down the mixture firmly (don't forget the edges)
Bake for 30 minutes
Leave it to cool completely before you cut the granola into bars (otherwise they will crumbles easily if you cut too early)
I bought all my ingredients from Asda. It works out to be about 21 p per bar.
Enjoy this healthy breakfast bar.
