Granola bars

Granola bars


For 4 people
  • 100g oatmeal
  • 100g almonds
  • 100g walnuts
  • 60g dried goji berries
  • 60g dried cranberries
  • 2 teaspoon of chia seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 95 ml maple syrup
  • 60 ml coconut oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon nut spread (optional)


  • 01

    Put the oatmeal flakes, almonds and walnuts in a blender and roughly blend for about a minute. It is important not to blend too long or the oat flakes and nuts will become too fine, it should not become flour.

  • 02

    Chop the goji berries and cranberries into small pieces with a sharp knife. Warning chopping is not a task for children because the risk of injury is very high.

  • 03

    Put the oatmeal-nut mixture, goji berries and cranberries in a bowl. Add the chia seed and cinnamon to it and mix well.

  • 04

    Now put the maple syrup and coconut oil in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat, add the nut spread and stir well. Then pour this liquid mixture over the oatmeal-nut-berry mixture and mix well.

  • 05

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Place baking paper on a tray and spread the mixture on it. Tip: if you press the mixture a little, the bars will keep their shape better. Put the tray in the oven and bake the granola bars for 25 minutes.

  • 06

    Get the tray out of the oven and cool slightly. When the bars are about room temperature, carefully lift the baking sheet and remove it from the tray. Let the bars harden in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

    Then cut it into strips of the desired size. We decided to go for bite-sized pieces for kids. The bars stay good for a week in the refrigerator and up to three months in the freezer.
