Recipe Healthy Granola Bars

Assalamualaikum wbt

dah seminggu saya makan  brownie gronola bars nie
dan ia sihat...

jadi disini saya nk kongsi resepi healthy brownies granola bars

cocoa powder

kenapa saya kata ia berkhasiat?
These bars DO indeed taste like a raw brownie.
They require just 7 ingredients.
They’re no bake, aside from toasting your oats and nuts (an optional step).
They’re loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein and healthy fats.
They’re incredibly satisfying.
They’re perfect for breakfast, dessert or a quick snack.
They’re freezer-friendly.
They’re uber chocolatey.
They’re really just kind of perfect.

jadi apa rasanya?rasanya supreme awesomeness...brownies nie rasanya
SUPER chocolatey
Slightly crunchy
Perfectly sweet
Mega filling
I did have one for breakfast and found it quite filling. But for the most part I ate these as a healthy dessert. I’d go to the freezer, break off 1/3 and snack. Then repeat for the next 30 minutes until it was gone. Self control comes in waves, people, especially with these bars.

7-ingredient granola bars that taste just like a raw brownie! No baking required besides toasting the nuts and oats - an optional step. Simple, all naturally-sweetened and so delicious.
Recipe type: Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine:  Gluten Free
Serves: 12
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats (GF for gluten free eaters)
  • 1 cup raw nuts, roughly chopped ( I used 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup pecans)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 cups pitted dates, soaked for 10 minutes in warm water, then drained
  • 3/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup natural salted almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar, maple syrup, or honey
  1. Optional step: Toast your oats and pecans in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Otherwise, leave them raw - I prefer the toasted flavor.
  2. Process walnuts in a food processor until a loose meal is reached. Remove from bowl and set aside.
  3. Add dates and process until small bits remain (about 1 minute). It should form a "dough" like consistency. (Mine rolled into a ball.)
  4. Add walnut meal and cocoa or cacao powder back in with the dates and process to combine.
  5. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and add the (toasted) oats and nuts and stir to combine. You may have to use your hands to really incorporate the mixture well.
  6. Next, warm honey and almond butter in a small skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until combined and pourable. Pour over brownie mixture and then thoroughly using a wooden spoon. (I opted to put plastic bags on my hands and mix that way to better incorporate the mixture.)
  7. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to a 9x13 dish (or similar size pan) lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper so they lift out easily.
  8. If using a 9x13, ONLY USE 3/4 of the pan so they have the proper thickness. Otherwise they’ll be too thin. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap and press down firmly to even out the top. Freeze for 15-20 minutes to harden.
  9. Lift bars from pan and chop into 12 even bars (or more if you prefer). Store in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge to keep them extra fresh. They will get a little sticky when left out at room temp.
