Healthy granola bars

  
Naturally sweetened and packed with nutritious ingredients, those granola bars require no baking and are the perfect addition to lunch box or mid-day snack.

  • 2 1/2 cups of quick cooking steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips

In the food processor, chop the walnuts and add the steel cut oats. Transfer to a large bowl and add the chocolate chips.     In a small pan, bring to a simmer the maple syrup with the coconut oil and vanilla extract. After a few minutes, pour over the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula.

In a glass 8×8 baking dish, spread evenly to form a large square. Place in the freezer for about an hour. 

Remove from the freezer and slice them.
