This is a healthy granola bar recipe full of dried figs, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and almonds. It is a great snack and I love wrapping them up and giving them as gifts. —Jacquilyn in the Kitchen
12 large full size bars or 24 small squares
hazelnuts, chopped (I use toasted)
macadamia nuts, chopped
dried figs, stems removed & chopped
coconut oil, softened
honey, divided. 1/2 cup +1/4 cup
In This Recipe
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8X8 pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl combine oats, salt, cinnamon, all nuts and dried figs. Stir well.
3. Next add the coconut oil and stir to evenly coat the mixture with the oil.
4. Add 1/2 cup of honey and stir really well so that the mixture becomes evenly coated and sticky. Add the last 1/4 cup of honey, making sure to drizzle it over the parts that look dry. Stir well.
5. Place the mixture in the parchment lined pan and press firmly into the pan, making sure it is even. I like to use the back side of a spatula or a piece of parchment paper to help press the mixture down.
6. Bake for 22-25 minutes until lightly golden brown on top. Remove from oven and cool for 1 hour in the pan. Transfer to fridge and cool for at least an hour before cutting into bars, which will prevent them from crumbling.
