Dry Ingredients2 ¼ cups oats - roasted⅛ cup millet - roasted½ cup almonds - roughly chopped2 tablespoons flaxseed meal½ cup chocolate chips
Wet Ingredients¾ cup Roasted with Sea Salt Much Better Butter™ ⅓ - ½ cup honey or maple syrup2 tablespoons coconut oil
Optional add-ins: coconut, raisins and/or other dried fruit. My kids aren’t fans of the additions since it adds sweetness-- they prefer a straight up semi-sweet chocolate taste to their bars.
How to make Much Better Butter™ Granola Bars
Preheat oven to 350°F
Roast the millet, oatmeal and almonds at 350°F until aromatic, for 12 to 14 minutes. This bake adds a crunchy roasted texture to the bars. Once done, remove the pan and turn down the oven to 325°F.
Measure out the wet ingredients into a microwaveable container and heat slightly until the ingredients have softened-- approximately 45 seconds. Mix until well integrated. If using Honey Kissed Much Better Butter™ reduce amount of honey to ¼ - ⅓ cup.
In a large mixing bowl measure out the remaining dry ingredients, minus the chocolate chips, and stir in roasted ingredients from the oven. Add wet ingredients and mix until well-combined. If you prefer the chocolate melting into the batter, add chocolate chips while the roasted and wet ingredients are warm.
Press firmly into a 9” x 9” pan lined with parchment paper. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to to press into a flat, uniform layer. Bake at 325 degrees until the edges are golden brown, for approximately 15 minutes.
Cool completely before removing and slicing into 6 bars or 12 squares. Enjoy!
