here is another great recipe to replace the common sugary granola bar found in the snack aisle at the grocery store. these bars are hearty, moist and have little crunch to them from the walnuts. davith has never been a fan of apples or carrots, so this is a great way to integrate those tastes into his diet without him knowing it! sneaky, sneaky....they make a great breakfast, snack or dessert.
makes 12 bars
1 medium carrot, grated
1 medium apples, peeled, cored, and grated
2 cups of oats
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
preheat the oven to 350 degrees. lightly oil an 8x8 baking pan and set aside. add all ingredients to a medium bowl and mix well. transfer mixture to the prepared pan and use a spatula to pat it down firmly. bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. allow to cool before cutting into squares.
