No Bake Molasses Granola Bars | © 2014 |

These granola bars were adapted from No-Bake Granola Bars from David Lebovitz. They are soft, chewy, but won’t stick to your teeth, sweetened with molasses and rich in nutrients and fiber. These make-ahead granola bars travel well and are perfect for the office or on-the-go breakfast.

  • 130 g Porridge oats
  • 40 g Sesame seeds, toasted
  • 60 g Almonds, roughly chopped
  • 75 g Roasted salted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 50 g Dark chocolate, chopped
  • 80 g Dried physalis
  • 70 g Dried prunes, quartered
  • 65 g Creamy peanut butter
  • 110 g Molasses
  1. Line a 12×28-cm rectangular or 24-cm square-shaped pan with plastic wrap. Place sesame seeds in a small oil-water-free pan over medium heat. Shake the pan so that they are evenly spread in a thin layer. Toast, stirring from time to time with a wooden spoon, for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden brown. Transfer them into into a bowl. Add oats, chopped almonds, peanuts, chocolates and dried fruits. Set aside.
  2. Heat peanut butter and molasses in a saucepan, stirring until warm, but not boiling. Pour the mixture into the oat mixture. Stir until completely incorporated.
  3. Transfer the mixture into the prepared pan and press it down until uniformly flattened. Cover and freeze for 30 minutes. Remove and cut into slices. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |
