I saw a recipe for these the other day on My New Roots and I had to give them a go! I’ve altered the recipe a little, which is why I decided to share it again! These are everything I look for in a granola bar: crunchy, not too sweet, a touch of salt, satisfying, delicious and good for you too!
MATCHA GREEN GRANOLA BARS
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 ½ cups popped quinoa
- ½ cup raisins
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
- ⅓ cup coconut nectar
- ½ cup tahini
- 2 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine oats and pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the oats are golden and have a nutty aroma.
In a small saucepan combine the coconut nectar, tahini, coconut oil, vanilla and heat on low until dissolved. Turn off and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the cooled oats and pumpkin seeds with the raisins, quinoa puffs, salt, and matcha.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir quickly to mix.
Pour the mix into a tin lined with baking paper. Press the mixture firmly and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up
Remove and slice into bars.
Will keep for two weeks in the fridge.
