Rustic Coconut Chocolate Granola Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 1 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup raw whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sucanat or raw sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • coconut cooking spray or oil for greasing pan

Make it!

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9×13 glass casserole dish with aluminum foil.
  2. Add oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to a food processor and lightly pulse for 30 seconds.
  3. In a large bowl add olive oil, sugar, maple syrup and salt—mix well.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients to the sugar mixture and mix well.
  5. Coat dish with non-stick spray or rub with oil, pour granola mix into dish and spread evenly with spatula until firmly packed down. These are crumbly bars, so pack well! Sometimes I use a rectangular glass dish to pack down corners.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes depending on oven.
  7. Let cool! Cutting into squares will go much better when these have cooled completely. Keep in an airtight container.
