AMAZING HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS!!!!





1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup ground hemp seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
2 cups oats (I used old fashioned-make sure gf is making gluten free version)
1/2 cup chopped dried strawberries
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup raw honey
1 tablespoon orange zest
Sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 F

Melt ALMOND OR PEANUT butter and maple syrup & honey.  Stir into the dry ingredients to combine.

Pour into a non-stick foil lined 9x13 cookie sheet pan with sides. Use a rolling pin to spread the mixture into a even layer. Grind sea salt over the top. Bake for 25 minutes. Leave to cool completely before cutting.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

NEXT TIME, I WILL OMIT THE ORANGE ZEST-WAS VERY STRONG, I THOUGHT.

I love granola bars and am always looking for new versions to make. These sound different yet backed with all sorts of goodies. They sound delicious. Glad I stopped by.
