Granola slices

By popular demand it has been requested I post the recipe for my nutty, fruity, granola slices. These are the one's I made for the Christmas Day Charity yoga class at BYJ. Very simple and can be made organic very easily. Feel free to add any type of fruit or nuts you prefer. Enjoy!!!
Healthy Granola Bar Recipes #2
Fruit, Nutty, Whole Grain Bars
This recipe makes delicious chewy, crunchy healthy granola bars full of oats, dried fruit, and whole grains, lightly sweetened with the natural goodness of maple syrup instead of sugar.
You'll need a food processor to make these quick and easy granola bars. Or Thermomix owners follow the instructions below, chop everything on speed 7 or 8, then mix on number four till all mixed well.
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal  flour
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried raisons
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (decent Canadian kind available in Woolworths, don't use the pancake syrup junk)
  • 2 large eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 170C degrees.
  2. Grease a lamington baking pan with cooking spray, I line with baking paper too.
  3. Place oats, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, flour, fruit, almonds, dry milk, and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse until everything is chopped and well blended.
  4. Add maple syrup and eggs and pulse until everything is well blended.
  5. Spread the thick batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake until lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool and a wire rack on the counter for 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Cut bars into desired size and shape.

Once they are completely cool, you can store these fruity, nutty, chewy, healthy  granola bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days
