Homemade Granola Bars - Apple Cinnamon

Almost all of the homemade granola bars that I have ever eaten should have been called "granola crumble" because it just didn't stay together.  Today I am sharing with you my granola bar recipe that actually sticks together and remains a "bar".

Printable Recipe

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup dried chopped apples
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup ground almonds
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon flaxmeal (optional)
2/3 cup almond flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey

Melt the butter and honey together and then place aside.  Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it resembles the picture above.  In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients with the butter/honey mixture and stir until combined (see picture below).

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (making sure that the paper goes up along the edge a little).  Pour the granola batter onto that lined cookie sheet and press down on the granola so that the entire sheet is evenly covered with granola.  Use a spatula (I used my pastry tool) to completely compress the dough (see picture below).

Score the batter into granola bar sizes (see picture below).

Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for about 35 to 45 minutes (or until desired golden brown is achieved) IMPORTANT NOTE: Baking for just a few minutes too long will result in a burned taste - be careful.

Remove from the oven.  Rescore/cut each bar and place on a cooling rack.
