Granola (Muesli) Bar

A Breakfast or Snack that is made of  rolled oats with dried fruits, nuts and honey or brown sugar is called a Granola Bar in US and Muesli Bar in rest of the world.

Granola / Muesli bar is favorite snack for, those who do sports, camping, hiking, because of its HIGH Calorie offering.

Granola / Muesli bar can be consumed with yogurt and fruits for a formal breakfast.

It’s my son’s favorite snack during the swimming meets. – To ensure he gets high calorie, without filling the stomach.

Believe me, the most simple recipe, I ever came across is Granola / Muesli bar.  Since, we have lots of nuts / seeds in a Granola / Muesli bar, it may take little longer to digest. Hence, we add flax seeds to fasten the digestion.

Here the ingredients list :  1/2 cup of Chopped Almond    ;    1  cup  of Oats    ;      1/4   cup of  Sunflower seed      ;      1/4 cup of  Pumpkin seed       ;     1/4  cup of Walnuts      ;       1/4 cup of  peanuts   ;    1/4 cup of  flax seed       ;      1/4 cup of  raisins      ;      1/3  to  1/2 cup  of  honey (up to you)     ;    1/2 cup of brown sugar     ;   1 egg, beaten (Optional)     ;    2/3 cup  of butter          ;      1 teaspoon of  Vanilla

Just combine almond, Oats, sunflower seed, Pumpkin seed, Walnuts, Peanuts, Flax seed, Raisins and honey. 

Add brown sugar, egg (if you like), melted butter with the nuts/seeds mixture and blend well.

Transfer the mixture to a pre-greased baking pan and press firmly, so that its sets well.

Transfer the pan into a pre-heated oven and bake at 350°F / 180°C for about 20 minutes. 

Allow it to cool and slice them into desired shape and size. Store it in an airtight container.
