Granola breakfast bars..

These granola bars are a quick breakfast in busy mornings..No cooking and hurry burry work needed in the kitchen..I was inspired to prepare this on seeing the healthy odwalla bars..It can be prepared and packed earlier..They are simple,satisfying..It also gives the energy needed in the morning as it contains nutritious ingredients like oats,honey,almonds etc..It can be prepared with your favorite ingredients on hand.this is my version..It took me very less time to prepare this and it tasted wonderful..I could nt resist myself from eating this..I prepared this in the afternoon and I finished three bars by that evening itself..Couldnt wait till the morning..


Oats - 2 cups (I used the old fashioned type)
Slivered almonds - 1 cup
Honey - 1/2 cup
Brown sugar/jaggery - 1/4 cup
Butter - 2 spoons
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon
Dried fruits (your favorites) I used raisins and cranberries
Some other options - Flax seeds, Sunflower seeds,Wheat germ,oat bran etc..


Preheat the oven to 350 F..
Combine together the oats, almonds and other optional ingredients added..
Grease a baking sheet and spread this mixture and bake for 6 to 7 minutes..Mix once in between while baking..
In the meantime, heat a vessel and add the butter,brown sugar,honey and vanilla extract together..Bring it to a boil and switch it off..The sugar should have dissolved well..
Now fold in the oats-almond mixture and the dried fruits..Mix thoroughly with a spatula till everything has combined together..
Transfer this mixture to a greased baking dish and press down and level the mixture with the back of a spatula..

Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes..Cool completely..
Cut down into bars of required sizes..Cut only after it has cooled well..I got 5 long bars for the amount of ingredients mentioned above..
Store in airtight containers or wrap them in foils..

Just one granola bar and a cup of milk would be a filling breakfast..
