Ingredients

Granola Bars

  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup dry roasted sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 Tablespoon wheat germ
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups dried mixed fruit
  • 6 Tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup corn syrup
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup coconut oil

Chocolate Topping

  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate
  • 1 ½ teaspoons coconut oil

Instructions

Granola Bars

  • Spray the inside of an 8-inch square baking mold with cooking spray and set on top of a piece of parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine almonds, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, coconut, oats, wheat germ, salt, and fruit. Set aside.
  • In a 2 quart saucepan, combine sugar, water, corn syrup, honey, and coconut oil.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook to 245 degrees.
  • Pour over dry ingredients.
  • Use a silicone spatula to stir together.
  • Spread in prepared mold and allow to cool.

Chocolate Topping

  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate and coconut oil.
  • Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.

Putting It Together

  • Pour chocolate mixture over cooled granola.
  • Allow to set.
  • Remove mold and cut into bars.

Notes

Substitutions:
  • If you don't have wheat germ, flax seeds are a suitable substitute.
  • You can use any fruit mix you like.
  • Almost any kind of nuts can also be used instead.
  • Butter can be used in place of the coconut oil, but it will be a bit greasier and it won't taste nearly as good.
Expert Tips:
  • If you don't have a baking mold, you can use an 8-inch square pan. Just make sure to line it with parchment and grease it!
  • Make sure the sunflower seeds are not salted.
  • The almonds, walnuts, and pecans in this recipe are not roasted.
  • Do not use instant oatmeal.
  • You may need to set the chocolate coated granola in the freezer for 5 minutes to ensure the chocolate sets. Do not leave it in there longer!
