Can I get a hola’ for granola? No?
Exams are over and I am so happy. Yes, I did only have one exam. Yes, I was so nervous everyone assumed I must have at least six. But it was my first law exam! Ever! I only realised about five weeks ago that government and law were actually linked. This is how prepared I was so there was actually some cause for concern.
Anyway pass or fail it is over now and time for some granola. This here is some good stuff. It is full of healthy seeds and nuts and dried fruits. It is filling and not too sweet, and it is time for holidays now. Make this granola if you are similarly in the mood for some healthy celebration. There is no flour or sugar in these granola bars either, and they are packed with protein! Other than that they also taste pretty good too.
Healthy Oat and Apricot Granola Bars: Inspired by Ottolenghi
50 grams each (1/2 cup roughly) walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried apricots and sultanas
200 grams (2 cups) gluten free oats
30 (2 tbsp) grams almond meal
200 grams (1 cup) raw honey
100 (1/2 cup) grams peanut butter
Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking paper. Preheat oven to 160C. Stir all your dry ingredients together. In a small saucepan melt your honey and peanut butter together and stir together. Pour over your dry ingredients and stir well. Pat down firmly with a large spoon into your tin using a potato masher, and bake for 20-23 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool completely before lifting out and cutting into squares.
