Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Granola Bars

1 1/3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoons ground nutmeg
1 tablespoons ground ginger
1/4 cup flax seeds
1 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown rice syrup

Recipe Directions for Homemade Granola Bars

  1. 1 1/3 cups quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats, divided

  2. a pinch each fine salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and ground ginger

  3. 1/4 cup flax seeds

  4. 1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped (or any combination of roughly chopped dried fruit and/or nuts)

  5. 1/4 cup canola oil

  6. 1/4 cup high quality maple syrup

  7. 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup (a great substitute for corn syrup, available at lundberg.com)

  8. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 8? square baking pan with parchment paper, letting a bit of excess paper hang over the sides.

  9. Grind 1/3 cup of the oats in a food processor until powdery. Add them to a large mixing bowl with the remaining oats, the salt and spices, flax seeds, and apricots. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients and then stir them into the dry ingredients.

  10. Put the mixture in the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula. Bake for 1/2 hour, or until evenly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Remove to a cutting board (the parchment paper will act as a sort-of sling, making this very easy). Cut into individual granola bars.
