Granola Bar Recipe

Let’s face it, we’re all busy but we don’t want to sacrifice our health for our busy lives. These gluten-free granola bars are an excellent way to fulfill this need. They are so versatile and you can add or take away from a recipe like this to fit your current desires! 🙂

These granola bars are great for kids too and they’re an excellent way to give them much needed nutrients to provide them with the proper fuel their bodies need. A great alternative to those sugar, GMO and gluten-filled options filling store shelves today.

A big concern related to the diseases our children (and adults) are developing today is largely related to the overdose of omega-6 they get from food. Without a proper balance of omega-3’s they’re microbiome, the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut can be greatly compromised resulting in issues with allergies and worse case, auto-immune diseases.

With a balance of healthy fats, oils, antioxidants and more, you and your family can enjoy these delicious bars without concern.

Because the whole process can take a while, I like to make these in large batches and freeze any extras. Notice there’s not a specific type of nut to use so you can use your favorites. I typically use walnuts, pecans, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Use all or just some of them. Dates (or a dried fruit of your choice) provide a little sweetness with the raw honey and cinnamon.

Try these delicious granola bars today and rest assured you have a healthy snack on hand!

Shhh, you can add dark chocolate to add an extra flare! Completely optional.

Instructions
  1. Soak nuts with sea salt in a bowl and cover. Leave overnight in the fridge. (Some prefer to use warm water and leave covered on the counter. Your preference here. The point is to soak them to soften the nuts and begin the sprouting process. By doing this you're going to digest nuts easier.)
  2. Using a colander, drain the nuts and rinse well.
  3. Spread out the nuts in one layer on a baking sheet
  4. Preheat oven to 150 degrees and roast the nuts for 10-12 hours.
  5. Cool the nuts completely before using
  6. Roughly chop half of the nuts using a rolling pin, knife or the bottom of a plastic cup
  7. Place the remaining half of nuts into your food processor or high speed blender and pulse until you get a soft powder. If it's a paste you've gone too far but it's still going to be good!
  8. Grab a medium saucepan and set to medium heat, add coconut oil, almond butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Heat ONLY until you see bubbles form and remove from heat immediately. (to prevent burning)
  9. In a large mixing bowl add both chopped and blended nuts, dried fruit, and almond butter mixture and combine well using a spatula of your choice.
  10. Grab a large dish, cover with parchment paper, and add the mixture, firmly packing the granola down. You should have one clean layer packed.
  11. Cover the dish with parchment paper and let sit at room temp for 1-2 hours.
  12. Place in freezer for another hour.
  13. Now you're ready to slice and serve! Keep the remaining granola in the fridge and ENJOY!
