homemade granola bars?

Anyone make their own granola bars? I've found a few basic recipes but they all see to have way to much sugar in them for my liking.

    I do... I have a few different versions.I use organic grade B maple syrup as it has some great health benefits.

    NON BAKE-

    QUINOA GRANOLA

     2.5 C quinoa flakes

    ? C maple syrup

    1/4 C coconut oil

    handful of dried apple/blueberry (I usually use little ducks because my LO hates dried fruit)

     bring liquids to boil, fold in dry ingredients, pour onto non stick surface or greased foil (I use a loaf pan) 

    Press it down firmly.Put it in fridge, slice when firm.Keep in the fridge.

     

    BAKE 

    OAT GRANOLA BARS

     1.5 C oats

    8 tbsp coconut oil+extra for greasing pan

    ? c (little less then full) maple syrup- you can do a taste test

    handful raisins

    handful fresh or frozen blueberries

    Throw ingredients in food processor (I use just the hand mixer for convenience).Pulse for a few seconds, just enough to chop the oats and let the ingredients mix.

    Pour in greased loaf pan.Bake at 350F for about 25-30 minutes.

  • I just made a batch the other day:

    1 cup natural peanut butter

    1 cup honey

    1 cup dried fruit (I use half raisins and half craisins)

    3 cups oatmeal

    1 cup chopped pretzels (if omitting, replace with either 1 cup of another mix-in or an additional 1 cup oatmeal)

    Microwave the honey and peanut butter for about 30 seconds to soften.  Mix all ingredients and press into a wax paper lined 9x13 pan.  Chill for about an hour and cut into bars.

  • Thanks. I'll try these for at home but I can't use nuts for day care. So coconut oil is out too! :(
