Crunchy Baked Granola Bar –

Ingredients:

  1. Addicted Honey Cinnamon Walnut Almond Granola
  2. 2 Tbsp almond butter (or another nut or seed butter)
  3. 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  4. 1/4 cup maple syrup (or sub brown rice syrup for a less sweet bar)

 

For Topping (optional)

  1. 1/2 cup chopped vegan dark chocolate
  2. 1 tbsp coconut oil
  3. 1 tbsp sea salt or hemp seeds

 

Instructions:

  1. Add almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup to a small saucepan and bring to a low boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Then remove from heat and immediately add to the Addicted granola.
  2. Use a mixing spoon (or your hands) to mix thoroughly, ensuring that the dates and the almond butter mixture are evenly dispersed and coating all of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the mixture to a parchment-lined 8×8-inch baking pan and spread into an even layer. Then top with another layer of parchment paper and press down with something flat – such as a measuring cup – to press into an even, uniform layer.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F (162 C) for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan. Transfer to the freezer to speed cooling time.
  5. Once cooled, lift out of the pan and slice into desired number of bars.
  6. Optional: Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil in a small mixing bowl in the microwave or over a double boiler on the stovetop. Spoon a small amount over the bars in a drizzle pattern or cover half of the bar with chocolate. Top with sea salt or hemp seeds.
  7. Once bars have dried/cooled, store covered at room temperature for 5 days or in the freezer up to 1 month.

Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Granola –

Ingredients:

  1. Addicted Cacao Almond Granola
  2. 1/4 cup coconut (or avocado) oil
  3. 1/2 cup maple syrup
  4. 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips or chunks (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil and maple syrup until melted and combined. Pour over the Addicted granola and mix well. If using a food processor, this breaks down the oats and nuts a bit more so it’s a finer texture, but this is optional.
  2. Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 17-24 minutes, stirring a bit near the halfway point to ensure even baking.
  3. After completely cooled, place in a container that has an airtight seal for a few weeks. Or store in the freezer up to 1 month or longer.
