Sugar-Free Granola Bars

Forget about the supermarket products – prepare this granola at home to make sure it doesn’t contain unhealthy ingredients such as sugar and refined fats. This recipe will transform you favorite breakfast into a healthy one! First, you have the fibers from oats, although indigestible by your body, but a great help for regulating digestion, preventing constipation and controlling your blood sugar. The nuts and seeds from granola provides high amounts of healthy fats (mono and polyunsaturated acids, including Omega-3), necessary for the health of brain cells, for lowering the bad cholesterol and reducing inflammation.

Ingredients

Makes 7-10 bars

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
4 tbsp vegan milk of choice
1/2 cup dried dates
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cups sultanas or raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
A pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Method

Preheat oven to 175°C/350°F. Add the rolled oats in the food processor and pulse until you obtain a flour. Transfer the flour in a large bowl. Remove the stones from dates, chop roughly and add them in the food processor, together with the vegan milk. Blend until you obtain a smooth mixture – add more milk if necessary. Pour the dates mixture over the oat flour, add the raw seeds, the sultanas, the cinnamon and salt, and stir very well until all ingredients incorporate and you obtain a thick granola batter.

Line a baking sheet with baking paper, and scoop the granola mixture on top. Use a spatula to evenly spread the mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden-brown, checking it frequently as oats burn very fast. Transfer to a cooling rack, let cool for 5 minutes, then slice and serve right away, or keep in an airtight container for about 7 days.
