Oats - Granola Bars

My husband is a fan of Granola bars and I make this regularly for his snack. This recipe doesn't call for All purpose flour. You can find the original source here I tried couple of recipes and liked this one better than the others. Since then, I stopped spending bucks on buying this outside. I am following this recipe. Also its good to make at home as I make my own modifications every time to vary the flavors. I did few additions to the original recipe, like adding coconut powder and condensed milk, sometime caramel syrup etc for an extra flavor. Otherwise no big changes.

Try it, Enjoy !






Ingredients:
Oats - 4 Cup
Brown Sugar - 1 Cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Melted unsalted Butter - 2/3 Cup
Honey - 1/3 Cup
Nuts - 1 Cup (Or per your choice)
Raisins - 1/4 Cup (Or per your choice)

Optional Ingredients to give extra flavour:
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 tsp
Condensed Milk (or)Caramel syrup- 1 tbsp
Vanilla - couple of drops
Chocolate Chips - a handful
Dry Coconut Powder - a handful

I used chopped Almonds/Walnuts and sometimes Peanuts too.

You can really play around with your choice of optional add-ons adding them however less or more per your choice.

I have no idea why one day I tried adding caramel syrup into this, but I dont regret it, it gives an excellent taste to this.

Use a big bowl, Mix dry ingredients first, mix well. Then add the rest. Mix until they are well combined.

They might not be of the form to hold a shape, will be a little loose but they will set once they are baked.

Take a 9x13" baking dish,line with parchment paper/foil and stuff in the granola mixture and tighten them using ur palm or more preferably a flat plate or something.

Bake at preheated 350' oven for about 20-30 mins. You can see the sides will start to brown. You might stretch the period if u like ur granolas on the crispier side. We like it a bit chewy, so I take it off at this point.It is really suggested to take a peek at about 20 mins, as oven timings vary.

Cool down for 2 hrs atleast. Cut into squares or rectangles.

P.S: They tend to harden much more when cooled for couple of hours.
