Oat-y Coconut-y Granola-y Bars

Serves: Makes 15

Difficulty: Easy

Ok so these have quite a few ingredients but they are pretty much oats and coconut with a few extras to add flavour and texture. Granola bars sound healthy but we all know that they are actually only super tasty when they have lots of sugar. You can also change this recipe for brekkie granola by reducing the sugar and stirring often when baking and when cooling.

Ingredients

  • 60 g unsalted butter
  • 75 g honey
  • 50 g golden syrup
  • 125 g brown sugar (I like demerara sugar)
  • 1 orange, juice and zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 200 g oats
  • 75 g desiccated coconut
  • 25 g coconut flakes, or use desiccated
  • 50 g almonds, roughly chopped
  • 75 g whole pecans
  • 50 g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 50 g sultanas

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 135°C/265°F/gas 2 and line a 20cm x 20cm x 5cm brownie pan with parchment paper.

2. Put the butter, honey, golden syrup, brown sugar and orange juice in a pan and bring to the boil before removing from the heat.

3. In a bowl mix together the remaining ingredients.

4. Carefully pour in the hot sugar syrup.

5. Mix together before spreading into the brownie pan.

6. Grease a pallete knife and flatten the top.

7. Bake for 40-45 mins, until golden brown.

8. Let cool until just warm, around 15 mins, before tipping out onto a board.

9. Remove the parchment and cut into equal sized squares.

10. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
