Easter Egg Granola Bars, Awww…

I adore granola.  In any form, really.  But I have say, these easter eggs are among my favorite.  And by no means do I limit myself to making them for Easter.  They work just as well in a four leaf clover mold.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • ½  teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ⅓  cup chopped almonds
  • 4 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • ½  cup unsweetened coconut
  • ⅓  cup almond butter
  • ¼  cup mini chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons
  • ¼  cup coconut oil
  • ¼  cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup mini white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix dry ingredients (oats through dried coconut). Add almond butter and 1/4 cup chocolate chips.  
  3.  In a sauce pan, heat honey, coconut oil and vanilla until sugar is melted and mixture just starts to simmer.
  4.  Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until incorporated.  Add 2 tablespoons chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon into mold and bake 18-20 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool completely (about 30 minutes) before removing from the molds.
  7.  Melt white chocolate in the microwave, for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval.  Add a few drops of beet juice. If your chocolate gets clumpy, add the coconut oil and warm in the microwave for 15 seconds, then stir.
