Chewy bars!

Servings: 6-8 bars
15-20 min prep

3 cups oats
2 tablespoons of melted butter
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/3 cup raw organic honey
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1/2 cup of any dried fruit of your liking (I used dehydrated cranberries)
1/2-1 cup dark chocolate chips (depending how much chocolate you like)
1/2 cup of any nuts of your choice (I like almonds or pecans)

Preheat oven to 350

Toast your oats on a baking pan for 15 min, stirring them half way through so they do not burn. While the oats are toasting, put the butter, sugar, honey, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a pan on low heat and slowly melt and combine flavours.

Make sure your sauce does not burn!

Then pull the oats out, pour into a bowl, and pour the liquid mixture, and all your lovely extra’s (nuts, fruits, chocolate) then stir until completely combined in a bowl and all oats are coated evenly. Place parchment paper in a 9×9 baking tin, making sure you have enough parchment paper left to fold over the oats. Then pour your oat mixture in the baking tin and flaten as much as possible. Then cover with the remaining parchment paper and flaten. Set granola bars aside in a cool place for an hour then you can slice into bars and enjoy! (you may freeze to make them cool faster, I usually make mine the night before)

Then place on a board with flour sprinkled so the dough will not stick on the board. Knead the dough for a few min then roll into two balls and flat’n out. Cut into triangles and place in a skillet. Make sure your skillet has butter, or coconut oil, or pam all over it before placing the triangles. Sprinkle zest on the triangles after you have placed them in a skillet.

Bowls on Bowls on Bowls

This year has been absolutely insane already, and I am so thankful! I knew 2017 was going to be a year of change and new beginnings. I have been needing to start everyday with a healthy breakfast full of energy! I keep finding different ways to make my bowls special, like preparing protein balls to add the chocolate sweetness I need. And pre made granola ( I will post the recipe) I also put my strawberries or raspberries in a pot and melt down to jam to bring out the flavours!

I would love to see any bowls you make or eat! please tag me on Instagram to share!
