Homemade Crunchy Granola Bars
Serves: 15
  • 3¼ cups rolled oats
  • ⅔ cups flour (I use freshly ground soft white wheat)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar or sucanat
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Add honey, coconut oil, and vanilla, stirring until well combined.
  3. Press mixture down into a parchment paper-lined 9x13 pan.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Remove pan from oven, and press the bars down with another piece of parchment paper so that they stay nice and tight while cooling.
  6. After 15 minutes, remove the bars from the pan to cool for a few more minutes.
  7. Cut them into 12 bars or break into snack-sized bites.
  8. Allow approximately 2 hours for the bars to become crunchy.
