Scale

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking oil spray
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 3-ounce bar dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cover the bottom of a square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a few inches of overhang on two opposite sides. Lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Place all ingredients except the melted chocolate into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Pulse for 20-30 seconds, or until the mixture comes together and begins to form a ball.
  4. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan. Use your fingers to press the mixture evenly into the pan.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown.
  6. Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before cutting into 12 bars or squares.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or double boiler on the stovetop. Use a spoon to drizzle it evenly over the cooled granola bars. Let sit about 30 minutes until the chocolate sets completely.
  8. Store room temperature in an airtight container with parchment between each layer.
