These chewy granola bars lean towards some elegant flavours with the help of fresh orange zest, cranberries, pistachios and cacao nibs.

You can use either regular unsalted butter or almond butter. I normally use organic honey, but for a vegan option, you can replace with equal amounts of palm sugar.

This recipe requires no baking and very little preparation time. It is a gluten free and sugar free recipe, with no added oil. These are essentially litte balls of energy made up of dates, chia seeds and cocoa powder. They are 100% nut free and full of nutrients.

As both the dates and chia seeds are high in fiber, it is a great recipe to prevent constipation and weight gain. The cocoa powder provides protein and adds to the flavour, as well as the pinch of salt as they make up for the lack of fat in the recipe.

Homemade Granola Recipe

This is a simply delicious breakfast recipe and one of my favourites!

It will set you up nicely for the day or alternatively can be consumed as a dessert depending on your taste. It is made with oats and various nuts and seeds which allows you to use the nuts of your choice. I used almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.

Oats are high in fibre helping your digestive health, and help you to release energy slowly throughout the day curbing those cravings and aiding in weight loss. Apricot kernels contains vitamin B17 and vitamin E making it high in anti-oxidants and increasing immunity levels. Chia seeds and sunflower seeds are packed with nutrients promoting immunity and digestive health. Almonds are rich in fiber and protein and are cholestrol free. The cinnamon and apple juice compliment each other in taste and help to warm the belly on those colder mornings. The dried cranberries and black currants not only add a great flavour to the crunchy nutty texture but are also full of nutrients and anti-oxidants. The great thing about granola is that you can eat it alone as a snack, or mix it with natural yogurt and fruit or pour it on top of your oatmeal as part of your breakfast.

The guideline for the amount of honey is 1 tablespoon but again you can use more depending on how sweet you want it.
