This homemade granola bar recipe is a favourite!
In a large bowl, mix together 3 cups of rolled oats and a mix of your favourite dry fruits (roughly chopped). Roast for about 8-10 minutes and transfer to a bowl. Next, add in some melted butter and honey (you can add brown sugar too, if you please). At this point, add some of your favourite flavourings like caramel or vanilla along with some cinnamon powder. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent, you can even add some chocolate chips. Transfer this mix to a greased pan and press it with a spatula. Cool this for about 2 hours and then cut it into bars. Voila! Healthy granola bars ready!

Take one part oats and one part puffed rice and roast for about 10 minutes. While this is being done, blend together dates in a food processer to get a chunky consistency. Once the oats and puffed rice are roasted, place it in a greased try and add the dates, maple syrup and a mix of sunflower, flax and chia seeds. Press this with a spatula to pack it in tightly. Once it's set in about 2 hours, cut as per your desired size and shape.
