Monday: Breakfast Bars
With the week just starting out, breakfast is the last thing on a busy mind. Whip up a batch of these all natural granola bars for a healthy meal that will fuel you on-the-go. Bonus: they also make a great afternoon snack!
You will need:
1 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans)
1/2 cup assorted seeds (pumpkin, poppy, sunflower, sesame)
1/3 cup chopped dried fruit (apricots, mangos and dried cherries and unsweetened coconut)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil or parchment paper and coat with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. Add cinnamon and honey, mixing well.
3. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Using wax paper, press down evenly until mixture is tight in pan.
4. Bake 18 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool at least 30 minutes. Use the sides of foil to lift the bars from the pan. Do not try to remove from foil—they will stick. Cut into bars.
Yield: 12-16 servings
