Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Mediterranean, Sugar free recipe
/ 250g roughly chopped nuts and seeds of choice
almond, walnuts, peanuts, pumpkin seeds...
/ 200g Butter
/ 500g Rolled oat
Honey or sweetener of choice
/ 200ml Double cream
/ 100g Dried fruit of choice
raisins, chopped dates, cranberries...
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Prepare tray with parchment paper so it'll be easy to take the granola bars out of the tray when they are ready.
Crush the nuts in a food processor or whatever means available.
Melt butter in a big saucepan.
Mix oat, nuts, sweetener and vanilla extract in a big bowl then pour mixture into the saucepan and roast the oat until it gets a slight golden brown color.
Pour double cream into the saucepan and cook it in low heat for a couple of minutes stirring the mixture constantly.
Separate egg whites from yolks and put them into a mixing bowl to beat them until hard peaks form.
Mix dried fruit and egg whites with the oat mixture evenly.
Put it on the tray and spread it evenly. Press it down as much as possible.
Shape out the stripes of the granola bars before placing tray in the oven.
Put tray in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until granola bars turn golden brown. Mind the bars at the sides as those tend to brown more quickly. Take them out one before they burn to oblivion.
Take tray out and leave it to cool down completely.
Serve it with milk or other warm drink or keep them in an airtight container for later.
