Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup white or whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed, golden or brown
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins or other dried fruit
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, loosely packed
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced nuts
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a strip of parchment paper approximately 9x15 inches. Line a 9x9 pan with the parchment paper with excess hanging over the pan edge (overhanging edges will serve as handles to remove the granola bars from the pan). Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together oats, flour, sugar, flaxseed, salt, pumpkin pie spice, dried fruit, coconut and nuts. Make a well in the center of the mix. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Press mixture evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until the edges begin to brown (note - center will appear to be undercooked).

Cool 5-10 minutes; use parchment paper as a handle and remove granola from the pan; place on cutting board, cut into 12-24 pieces. Cool completely; store in airtight container.
