Granola Bars

20160415_161727Ingredients:

2tbs butter
1/2 cup caramel sauce
1/8cup oil
1/2tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/8cup honey
1.5tsp vanilla
3/4cup shredded roasted coconut
1cup chocolate corn flakes cereal
1/2cup wheat germ
1/3 cup almonds, roasted, chopped
1/3cup walnuts, roasted, chopped
1/4 cup cashew nuts or raisins or any other nuts
Chocolate chips 1/2cup
3cups quick cooking oats

Heat the butter and caramel sauce in the microwave or pan separately. Then mix together the caramel sauce, butter, vanilla essence, oil, honey, brown sugar, and salt. Skip the salt if your caramel sauce is salted. Mix together the dry ingredients and then mix the wet and dry together.
Layer a baking tray with foil paper and oil it. Spread the granola mixture in it and press it hard down with the hello of a glass or measuring cup. It’s necessary to press it hard to ensure that the bars hold it you’ll be left with a granola cereal alone!
Bake it for 20 minutes till goldenish. Take out from the oven and let it cool down. Refrigerate for two hours then cut into bars. It gets crunchier as it cools down.
You can freeze it in the freezer to retain freshness or put them in a zip lock bag after separately wrapping each in parchment paper.

The idea of this recipe has been taken from the following blog.
