Apricot Goodness Granola Bars

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups old fashioned oats (quick cooking oats work fine too)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • ¾ cup raw organic honey or pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup whole or shaved almonds
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 egg whites (beaten)
Instructions:

Heat over to 325 degrees.

Spray a 15x10x1 inch- baking pan with non-stick spray. In a large bowl or mixer stir all ingredients together until mixture is completely moist and coated. Use clean hands to press mixture evenly into the greased pan. If mix seems too crumbly, add a bit more honey (or maple syrup). Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into 18 bars and wrap individually. Can be stored in freezer as well.

Tips:

I like to experiment with different dried fruits and nuts. Raisins, dates and walnuts for example, are a nice combination too! Experiment and have fun!
