Shanda’s Power Bars
Recipe from: Shanda Hill, Vernon, BC
These bars are simple to assemble and chock-full of good, healthy ingredients that help fuel busy lives.
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups graham crackers (crumbled)
1 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup of chocolate chips or domes
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of honey
2 tbsp of coconut oil
1/2 cup of butter
pinch of salt
Take honey, brown sugar, coconut oil and butter and combine them in a saucepan over medium heat. Combine the ingredients using a whisk or a fork, then turn the stove up to high and bring to a boil, (about 2 minutes and keep stirring) then set aside.
In a bowl, combine all your dry ingredients until well blended. Add a pinch of salt, then add the melted mixture from the stove by dribbling it into the dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly and evenly, then stir in your chocolate domes or chips.
Press the mixture into a parchment lined casserole dish until it is approximately 1 inch thick. The more you pack the mixture down into the dish, the better the bars will hold together.
Cool them in the fridge for about a half hour then serve!
