No bake Granola Bars
- 1 cup dried plums, pitted
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 1 cup roasted unsalted almonds, loosely chopped
- ½ cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 180o C (360o F).
Loosely chop the almonds and roast them in the oven for about 15’ or until slightly golden brown. Put them aside until they cool down a bit. (Optional: you can also roast the oats, as well).
Process plums in a food processor until small bits remain. It will take about 1’.
In a small saucepan, warm honey and peanut butter over low heat, until they melt.
Place oats, almonds and plums in a bowl and mix well.
Add honey – peanut butter mixture in the bowl and stir thoroughly until the plums disperse throughout.
Transfer the mixture in a pan lined with parchment paper and press down until uniformly flattened. Let the pan sit in the fridge for 30’to harden. (You can also put the pan in the freezer for about 20’, if you can’t wait to taste the bars!).
Remove the bars from the pan and cut them into 12 even pieces. You can store them in an airtight container for about a week. When the weather is hot, you should keep the in the fridge.
