Healthy Multi-Grain Granola Bars

Yield: 24 bars

Healthy Multi-Grain Granola Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tbsp water + 1 tsp water
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 4 oz. jars baby applesauce
  • 4 egg whites or 1 cup egg beaters
  • 2 tbsp milk of your choice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Place the raisins and water in a glass measuring cup and microwave for 1 minute. Mix the raisins so that they absorb the water.
  2. In a mini chopper, blend raisins until smooth. Pureeing the raisins intensifies their sweetness and gives the bars a lot of moisture. If you don’t want to puree the raisins, that’s Ok; just add them to the batter.
  3. Add the raisin puree to the wet ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the flours, baking soda and cinnamon.
  5. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and add the oats and walnuts. Mix everything together.
  6. Spread batter onto a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  7. Bake anywhere from 20 to 23 minutes, until light brown. You can test it with a toothpick (it will come out clean when ready).
  8. Before cutting the bars, let them cool. Cut into 24 bars.
