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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
