Granola Bar Recipe

Up-till now I have seen lot of granola bars made at home, on cookery shows, read in books. They all look great and I am sure tastes amazing. But we are not sure the ones we get in the market. How authentic  or genuine they are? especially excess quantity of sugar, fructose syrup. I am not saying they are not good but its better to make this at home. Clean, hygiene, delicious and the way you wanna make them… also eat them when you want to :)

Granola Bar Recipe

There are many ways and various flavors you can play with while making your Granola Bars. I have used both sesame seeds black+white. Also added almonds, pistachios and walnuts. Yeah also flax seeds powder. The equation is muesli+oats+flax seeds+sesame seeds+dry fruits= My Healthy Granola Bar! Power packed with the extra energy required in todays world.

Lets move towards making our healthy Granola Bar Recipe! Voila mom this Granola Bar Recipe is for you and dad.

  • 2 tbsp Flax seed powder

Take a chapati roller and roll on the top of the butter paper. Otherwise take a heavy object and press it with force. Try to flatten as much as you can.

Granola Bar Recipe

Wait for 2 hours or once the granola bar is firm. Honestly I couldn’t wait for that long. As I was dying to take a bite. So once I flattened them with a roller. I gently rolled them from one side to other with help of butter paper. Once I rolled them I took a sharp knife and sliced them.

However you can see in the pics its not evenly sliced. So don’t be impatient like me wait for 2 hours and than slice them into desired shape. You can also cut them into square shapes with the help of knife.

Garnish your Granola Bar with few choco chips and dry fruits. Wrap them into aluminium foils or plastic wraps individually. Store them into air tight container. Once you wrap them you can carry them along with you.
