Granola bars

I really love healthy desserts! Although to make those granola bars you need to use butter, they are still healthier than a bag of candies, don’t you think? I feel much better when I know I just have eaten nuts, dry fruit and granola!

Ingredients (make 12 granola bars)
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup dry fruit (raisins, apricots, cranberries, pineapple…)
¼ cup nuts (i.e. walnuts)
5 tbsp butter
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp wholemeal flour
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla essence

In a saucepan melt butter and honey. Pour the melted mixture over the dry ingredients mixed in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into a lined cake pan (about 10 inch/20 cm) and press down. Bake for about 25 min. at 360F/ 180 oC. Cool before cutting into bars. The easiest is to cut the bars with a bread knife.
