This sweet treat packs a punch without the guilt of a chocolate bar.
What’s better after a hard day’s walk than to sit with your feet up, a hot cup of tea and one of these granola bars to dunk? You can experiment with adding dried fruit or nuts to the mix for different flavour combinations.
Prep time: 10min
Cook time: 10min
Makes: 10-12 bars
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- 3 tbsp finely sliced crystallised ginger
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ⅓ cup honey
- ¼ cup tahini (or nut butter of choice)
Preheat the oven to 180℃. Place the oats, sunflower and pumpkin seeds on a tray and put in the oven for 5min until lightly toasted.
Remove from the oven and pour into a large bowl. Add chocolate chips, chia, hemp seeds, crystallised and ground ginger, and stir.
Place honey and tahini in a small pot and warm on the stove, stirring regularly until just bubbling. Pour this mixture into the oat mixture and stir until well combined. Press into a lined tin so that it is about 1cm thick. Bake for 8-10min, until crunchy and golden.
Remove from oven and allow to cool fully before slicing with a sharp knife into rectangles.
Store in an airtight container.
