“Two Moms in the Raw”- Style Granola Bar

IMG_4120.jpg

I’ve been eating these granola bars for several years, and have always loved them. Granola bars seemed to me a really good way to get going with raw foods — my feeling is if I can prep a bunch of grab and go style things, it won’t be that difficult to maintain.

So, the first thing I did was buy the Two Moms in the Raw Cookbook. Sadly, I quickly learned that they don’t give that recipe in their cookbook!!!!

Heartbroken, I began my search again.

It led me to this recipe on The Fitchen: http://thefitchen.com/2013/09/19/the-best-granola-bars-ever/.

Now, this was cool, but I was confused by the whole, use of an oven in a raw diet thing. Also, I’m itching to use my dehydrator. So I used their recipe with some slight tweaks.

Ingredients
  • 1 c. rolled oats (1/2 of the oats ground in food processor)
  • ¼ c. raw pepitas
  • ¼ c. raw cashew pieces
  • ¼ c. millet
  • 2 Tbsp. raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. oat groats
  • 5 dried Turkish apricots
  • 2 Tbsp. flax seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. Thompson seedless raisins
  • 2 Tbsp. dried currents
  • ⅓ c. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey
  • ½ Tbsp. coconut oil
