Healthy Granola Bars
300 gms rolled oats
100 gms wheat flour
75 gms jaggery powder (coconut sugar or brown sugar)
2 tbsp flax seeds
2 tbsp flax meal (ground flax seeds) + 5 tbsp water
2 tbsp cinnamon powder
2 scoop whey protein isolate (entirely optional, use only if you are into gymming)
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate (or chocolate chips)
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup pure sugarcane jaggery (can use melted jaggery, maple syrup, palm syrup, cane sugar, coconut sugar etc)
1/2 cup water or almond milk.
do not use honey as a sweetener in this recipe, honey should never be heated.
you can use maple syrup instead of jaggery.
The pure sugar cane jaggery I used is locally sourced and it comes in this melted form, I have shared other recipes with it also.
The flaxseeds and oats will get roasted/toasted in the oven along with the other ingredients, so you do not need to toast them separately.
Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree C for 20-25 mins, for some oven it may require 20-22 mins, oven temperature varies with oven, so keep an eye on it after 20 mins.
