Homemade Granola Bars

It is so hard to find granola bars without some kind of soy that I decided to make my own.  I modified a recipe that I got from the Azure Standard Midwest Routes facebook page and then added “sticky stuff” to make it into bars.  They came out great!  Here is the recipe:

Blueberry/Pecan Granola and Granola Bar Recipe

  • 1 cup Raw Honey
  • 1 cup Coconut Oil
  • 12 cups of Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried blueberries
  • 2 cups of Pecans

The way I make it:

Warm honey and oil just enough to melt and combine.  Mix in cinnamon and salt.  Stir in oats and blueberries.  Dehydrate at 105 degrees for several hours.  Add soaked/dehydrated nuts to mix, if desired.

Original directions:

Bring honey, oil, cinnamon and salt to a boil, stir constantly.  Then add oats, blueberries and nuts.  Stir until thoroughly mixed over low heat.  You can eat this warm, store in ziplocks for trips or store in the fridge.  It is very filling, nutritious and delicious all at the same time.

To make granola bars:

Warm ½ cup of raw honey and ¼ cup of organic peanut butter just enough to mix together.  Stir into 4 cups of granola and throw in a handful of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.  Press into an 8” square pan and refrigerate until chilled.  Cut into bars.
