The other day we made our first batch of granola bars. Oh my. Why didn't we think of this before. We served them at a girls come together, to our kids for their afternoon snack and as a bring to work snack for the gourmand husband. They all loved it.

You can find thousands of different granola recipes on blogs, Pinterest and magazines. 

We made a mashup of different recipes and added our own touch. The result was quite good, so here's the recipe if you wanna try it yourself.

If you are vegan try these all-natural granolas or if you prefer a more raw kind try these no-bake granolas.

15-20 bars or squares

75g almonds
30g pumpkin seeds
50g walnuts
200g old fashion oats
70g sunflower seeds
30g sesame seeds
80g dried cranberries or goji
100g of dried apricots
60g muscovado sugar
80g honey
75g peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt

        Chop almonds and walnuts coarsely.
        Mix together all the dry ingredients (almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, 
        oats, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds). Pour the mixture into an 
        ovenproof dish. Bake at 200° C for 15 min.

        Cut the apricots into small squares and mix with raisins cranberries or 

        Now mix together muscovado sugar, honey, peanut butter, maple syrup, salt                                 
        and egg in a saucepan over the stove. Let the “glue” to merge at low heat.

       When the dry ingredients come out of the oven, pour into the bowl and mix 
       with of cranberries/gojis and apricots. Then pour the hot mass over the 
       granola and stir thoroughly.

       Cover a ovenproof dish with baking paper and pour the entire mass in. 
       Press gently on the mass to make sure it is evenly distributed and fixed.

       Bake at 180° C for 15-20 min.

       When you take the dish out of the oven, it's important to let the mass 
       cool completely before you cut the granola into bars or squares.

Enjoy !
