Crispy Honey Granola Bars
Adapted from onceuponachef
2 cups rolled oats (I used quick oats)
1 cup rice crispies
½ sliced chopped almonds
½ cup unsweetened coconut
½ tsp cinnamon powder
¼ tsp salt
½ cup honey
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla entrance
Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius.
Spread oats and nuts on a parchment covered baking sheet and toast for 10 mins, occasionally stirring.
Add coconut and mix well and bake again for 5-7 mins.
Meanwhile, add honey, brown sugar, butter, salt and vanilla in a small pan and heat until brown sugar dissolves.
Take off fire and keep aside. It ok if it cools little bit.
Mix oats, cinnamon powder and rice krispies in a large bowl.
Add the honey mixture and mix well.
Grease the same parchment paper lightly with oil and spread the oats mixture evenly. Don’t make it too thick.
Don’t press down hard.
Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes. Take out and cool till warm to touch.
Cut into bars with a serrated or sharp knife. Store in an airtight container when completely cool.
Note: After baking for 20 minutes, I switched off the oven and left it inside for 2hrs (oven door closed) The result was very crunchy crispy bars!!
