Hey all. Anyone have any recipes or ideas on how to make superhero granola bars? I have tried a couple different recipes and haven´t had much success. Lots of recipes on the web have sugar in them. I´d like to make one that uses agave syrup for the sweetner, as that is easily available where I live. I think in the versions I was making before, I didn´t have enough binding ingredients.
Gwyneth Paltrow's Homemade Granola Bars (they're so yummy!)1 1/3 cups quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats, divided a pinch each fine salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and ground ginger 1/4 cup flax seeds 1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped (or any combination of roughly chopped dried fruit and/or nuts) 1/4 cup canola oil 1/4 cup high quality maple syrup 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a 8" square baking pan with parchment paper, letting a bit of excess paper hang over the sides.
Grind 1/3 cup of the oats in a food processor until powdery. Add them to a large mixing bowl with the remaining oats, the salt and spices, flax seeds, and apricots. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients and then stir them into the dry ingredients.
Put the mixture in the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula. Bake for 1/2 hour, or until evenly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Remove to a cutting board. Cut into individual granola bars.
