I often find the granola bars sold at supermarket way too sweet, so I decide to make my own. It is a high versatile recipe because it is easily customizable. I adopt the ratio from this recipe from King Arthur Flour.
- 145g roll oat
- 45 g brown sugar
- 28g oat flour or almond meal
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 283-425g of chopped dried fruit. For the harder dried fruits, such as papaya, reconstitute it with warm water.
- handful of shredded coconut and sliced almond
- 1tsp vanilla
- 57 melted butter or vegetable oil
- 78g honey
- 14g water
Mixed all above ingredients well. Spread it evenly in a baking pan. Bake it at 350ºF for 25 minutes. Cut the sheet of granola into bars while it is hot, and let it cool. The granola should shaped once it is cold.
Voilà! You can put any type of dried fruit that your heart desires. I call my version a brittle because it does not settle into a bar shape due to the lower sugar content in my recipe.
