Inspired by this recipe, I’m pretty sure these would work with other fruits or spice mixes or nuts.
- 2c pecans
- 2c rolled oats
Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper. Toast for 10-15m until they start to smell toasty.
- 6oz pitted dates
- 4 oz dried apricots
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- .5 tsp salt
Combine above with nuts and oats in a food processor. Process until well blended, then add
- 6oz (approximately one large) Granny Smith apple, roughly chopped with skin (or without if you prefer)
Process until the mixture clumps together into a lump. Spread carefully (the flatter you get this, the more even the bars will be) into an 8×8 or 9×9 pan. If the pan is silicone, use it as-is, otherwise line it with a piece of parchment paper with some extra length to use as handles to remove the bars.
Bake 20 minutes. Let cool a few minutes in the pan, then pull out/invert onto a cutting board and slice with a pizza cutter or big knife into granola bar sized pieces.
