Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw pecan halves
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw cashews or walnuts
  • 1 cup gluten free old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1 cup dried apples chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted (use refined for no coconut flavor)
  • 1/4 cup creamy nut butter my favorite is cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Line a square baking dish (8x8 or 9x9 inch) with parchment paper along the bottom and sides, leaving extra on the sides for easy removal. Set aside.
  • Place the nuts in the bowl of a food processor and pulse 5-10 times times to gently chop the nuts. Be careful not to overmix, so there are still some chunks left.
  • Transfer the nuts to a large mixing bowl and stir in gluten free rolled oats, cinnamon, salt, and dried apples.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil, nut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula to fully combine.
  • Pour the granola bar mixture into prepared pan and press down using the rubber spatula or your hands to tightly pack the bars.
  • Cover with plastic wrap or foil and freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Notes
