When I became pregnant I started as most newly pregnant woman do, looking a little closer at what I was putting in my body every time I ate. I found it next to imposible to find a granola bar that wasnt filled with crap. Even the healthy ones were loaded with stuff I didn’t want and were way too high in fat. And so I began my search to create the perfect granola bar. Throughout my pregnancy I made a wide variety of bars, some good some not so good. I even made a few that were near perfect but do you think I wrote down the recipe to any of my attempts?…nope not one. So this is where my search yet again begins. Only this time I will be writing them all down, each and every one of them.
Get together and measure out your supplies.
Dump all dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
Pour all wet ingredients in a pot and mix over med-high heat until melted.
Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry and mix.
Spread the mixture in a pan. Flatten with a spatula.
Bake at 325 for about 25 min. Remove from oven. Make sure you press the hot granola bars down again packing the mixture tight. This time I use a small wooden cutting board, it works great to cover a larger surface and you can realy push hard. Now let cool. Dump pan upside down over a large cutting board. Now cut the bars and eat.
- 5Tbl All natural Peanut butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
- 1 1/2 Tbl vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups organic brown rice puffs
- 1/2 cup Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted whole grain cereal
- 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup dried fruit ( I used raisins )

These are not the perfect granola bar. They are good but a bit crumbly for my liking. And so the search continues.
