Nutty Granola Bars

Nutty Granola Bars

Sometimes one biscuit is not enough and sometimes more the two isn’t enough either! I was always a fan of flapjacks when I was younger, yummy, satisfying and not too filling for an afternoon snack, but the high sugar content puts me off now and I would rather have something deliciously healthy rather than unhealthy. I have come across various recipes for granola bars and thought I would combine by two favourites: Minimalist Baker’s Super Seedy Granola Bars and Deliciously Ella’s Date and Oat Bars. I took all the nuts and seeds from Minimalist Baker and the chia seeds, dates and general cooking method from Deliciously Ella.


400g Oats, 400g pitted dates, 4tbsp chia seeds soaked in 16tbsp of water, 300ml water, 2tsp cinnamon, 1tbsp almond/peanut butter

Nut and Seeds – any that you fancy! I roughly chopped 50g each of walnuts, cashew, pistachio and a tablespoon of mixed seeds.


Follow Deliciously Ella here. 

The beauty of this basic granola bar recipe is that you can add anything you want, and any quantity you want, and at the same time make them as gooey or crumbly as you desire by adjusting the dates and water ratio. I hope you enjoy this yummy and healthy snack!
