Recipe by Fran Allen
These perfectly chewy homemade granola bars are the perfect midday snack for a boost of energy and nutrients. Loaded with healthy fats, fibre and molasses, these are great for postpartum healing and chest feeding!
Preheat the oven to 300 and line a 3 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Allow the paper to extend over the sides to avoid any sticking of your bars.
In a large bowl, combine oats with seeds, coconut and dried fruit and set aside. In a small saucepan on medium heat combine honey, coconut sugar, molasses, ghee, sea salt and vanilla. Stir well and allow mixture to simmer for 1 minute.
Immediately pour honey mixture over oat and fruit mixture; toss gently to coat. Press mixture firmly into the prepared pan (use wet hands to avoid sticking) Bake at 300° for 30 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan, cut into 12 bars and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
