Our Pastry Chef, Robert, wanted to share his granola bar recipe with everyone, just in time for Back to School! It’s the perfect amount of sweetness and makes for a great mid-afternoon pick-me-up snack! What’s better is the quick and easy recipe, and the fact that it’ll be a treat for the kids and yourself!
- 1 1/2 cups Oatmeal
- 1 cup Sliced Almonds
- 1 cup Shredded Coconut
- 1/2 cup Toasted Wheat Germ
- 1/2 cup Butter
- 1 3/4 cup Honey
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 2 tbs. Vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 3/4 cup Dates, chopped
- 3/4 cup Dried Apricots, chopped
- 3/4 cup Dried Cranberries
Preheat oven to 300°. Butter 1/2 sheet tray, line with parchment paper, and set aside.
Toss oatmeal, almonds, coconut, and toasted wheat germ. Boil the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla and salt over medium-low heat until everything has dissolved; pour over oatmeal mix.
Add dried fruit and mix it all together.
Pour onto tray and bake at 300° for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Wait for it to cool down before cutting into small rectangles. Enjoy!
