Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups quick or rolled oats
  • 1 cup dried cherries or blueberries
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • cup honey agave or maple syrup

Instructions

  • Microwave the peanut butter and honey for 30-40 seconds and stir together.  Heating helps everything bind together more easily while they firm up after they're made.
  • Add in the oats and dried fruit and mix it all up.  Add more oats if needed. Too many will make them dry.
  • Press the granola firmly and evenly into a 9x5 loaf pan lined with parchment paper or tin-foil for easy removal, lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. You can use the bottom of a measuring cup to help press it down so that it’s nice and flat and firmly packed so that the bars will hold their shape well.
  • Refrigerate until chilled.  Then cover the baking pan and pop it in the fridge for an hour or until the bars are chilled.
  • Cut the bars.  Lift up on the parchment paper or tin-foil to transfer the granola onto a cutting board and cut the bars into whatever size you like.
  • Chill the bars to better hold their shape.  You could even roll them into bite-sized balls!  Place them in a zip-lock or sealed container to keep them fresh and enjoy!
