Scale

Ingredients

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded coconut, chopped fine if desired. 
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries, chopped

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 jar Lundberg brown rice syrup (3/4 cup or so)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 T. oil (avocado, grapeseed, soy)
  • 1 t. vanilla extract

 

  • 1/2 cup safe chocolate chips 
  • Extras (flax seed, chia seeds, if you can use these)

Instructions

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a big mixing bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the brown rice syrup and salt until boiling and boil for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat and add the oil and vanilla.
  4. Pour the heated syrup over the dry ingredients and mix well until everything is coated.
  5. Dump into a foil or parchment lined pan and spread it out to cool, but don’t press it down yet. I use a 1/4 sheet pan, but a 9 x 13 casserole pan will work too. 
  6. When the mixture has cooled a bit, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and press everything down hard.
  7. Let the granola block cool and firm up before cutting into bars and wrapping. 

Notes

For chocolate, I use Enjoy Life or Divvies
