Chewy Granola Bars


Most store bought granola bars are full of fat and added sugar. Here’s a yummy recipe I use to make my own:

  • 3 cups rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup flaxseed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cardamom
  • ¾ cup grapeseed oil
  • ¾ cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract

Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix oats, flour, nuts, flaxseed, salt, cinnamon and cardamom in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix oil, agave nectar (or syrup), and extract. Combine with the oats mixture and stir well.

Spread mixture evenly on the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings.  Enjoy!
