Home-Made Granola Bars

The usual granola bars are packed with nuts and dried fruits. Being a salicylate sensitive person, nuts and dried fruits are out of the question. Below, is my own healthy, home-made granola bars recipe.


1. 2 cups of organic rolled oats
2. 1 cup of quinoa
3. 2 tablespoons of soft, brown sugar
4. 1 cup of home-made sugar syrup
5. 1 egg
6. 1 teaspoon of baking soda
7. 1 cup of sunflower oil


1. Pour the rolled oats, quinoa, soft brown sugar, baking soda into a large bowl. Mix them thoroughly.

2. In another bowl, pour the sunflower oil and egg together and whisk until thoroughly mixed.

3. Pour the liquid concoction onto the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

4. Preheat oven at 190C.

5. Pour the mixture into a baking pan.

6. Drizzle the home-made sugar syrup onto the mixture.

7. Bake for about 1/2 hour or until golden brown.

8. Once it is cooled, cut the whole chunk into bars.

9. Serve with warm drink.

Bon appétit!
