Sugar Free Granola Bars
We love this sugar free, healthy recipe, packed with goodness!
We make these about once a week, and on these days, I’m happy for my kids to snack on them as much as they like, or have them for lunch!
3 cups oats (ground in blender or food processor)
2/3 cup dessicated coconut (ground in blender or food processor)
1 1/2 cup raisins (pureed) with a splash of juice or milk to help it puree
1/2c (120g) butter
1. Whizz up the oats and coconut, and then the raisins, in a blender or food processor.
2. Mix all together, press into greased pan to about 1/4 inch thick (one cm). I use a metal pan approximately 11” x 10”.
3. Cook about 12 minutes on 400F/Gas 6/200C
4. Cut into bars and let them cool, they’re less likely to fall apart.
They keep a few days left out in a tupperware, but I usually freeze them as soon as they’re cooled, and leave out enough for a day or two.
The trick to getting them to stay together is blending up the oats, coconut, and raisins. This smooth consistency keeps them from falling apart easily.
