Granola Bars

The Granola Bars Recipe Tasty crumbly oats mixed with sticky, sweet syrup and crunchy corn flakes make these granola bars completely irresistible. Oats release energy slowly, so after eating one of these bars you won’t feel hungry for a while. Don’t be tempted to take the granola bars out of the pan until they are completely cooled or they will break apart. Make: 16

Granola Bars Recipe
6 oz (175 g) butter (diced)
1 1/4 cups (175 g) light brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup, or 2 tbsp light corn syrup and 2 tbsp honey
2 1/4 cups (350 g) whole rolled oats
2 cups (50 g) corn flakes

Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). In a saucepan, gently melt the butter, sugar, and golden syrup over a low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and gently stir in the rolled oats and the corn flakes with the wooden spoon, until the mixture is thoroughly combined and sticky.

Pour the mixture into an 11” x 7” (28 cm x 18 cm) pan and spread it into the corners. Gently press down with the back of the wooden spoon to make the top flat and even.

Bake the mixture for 25 minutes, or until golden and firm. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then cut it into bars. Leave to cool completely before lifting the bars out of the pan.

You can add 1/3 cup (50 g) dried fruit, such as chopped apricots, dried cranberries, blueberries, or raisins for fruity granola bars

Notes and Tips:
Cut the granola bars into squares while they are still slightly warm, otherwise they will be too hard to cut.
