Amidst the pandemic, millions have become highly conscious about our health and fitness. However, one thing that has remained constant is our cravings that seem never to die. So, if you want to treat yourself to something delicious and healthy simultaneously, granola bars are the perfect pick. A granola bar is one of the wholesome snacks made with the goodness of rolled oats, brown sugar, water and loads of nuts and luscious raisins. They are overloaded with myriad flavours and essential nutrients, which keeps us feeling fuller throughout the day. So, it’s time to pack your tummy with some homemade bars rich in taste and proteins.
Here are some tips and tricks for making wholesome granola bars at home
- Select good quality rolled oats: Always choose well-rolled oats to make granola bars. As you know, oats are one of the prime ingredients, so it's better to make your granola bars with the best quality of rolled oats.
- Use loads of nuts and raisins: From pistachios, walnuts, almonds, dates to dried cranberries, use loads of nuts and raisins to make your homemade bars. Using nuts and raisins will enrich your bars with nutty and luscious flavours. So choose your favourites and mix them up.
- Add a dash of honey: Using honey help in adding a sweet flavour and ultimate smooth texture. You can use any other sweetener like maple syrup. Sometimes granola bars turn out to be quite brittle, so to avoid this, honey ad maple syrup is added to the mixture.
- Refrigerator for hours until set: Once your mixture is ready, transfer it on a baking tray or pan covered with parchment paper. You must let them chill in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours or until they are set. Using a parchment sheet is essential to avoid the mixture/layer sticking to the pan. After it’s completely set, remove and then cut them into the desired shape.
