Fruity Granola Bars
By Caitriona Redmond
Oats are naturally low GI so will give you slow-releasing energythrough the day, avoiding sugar-spikes. These chewy fruit flapjackswill keep for up to 5 days in a sealed dry box in a cool place.Each bar is the equivalent of 1 portion of your 5-a-day.
1. Preheat a (fan) oven to 170°C.
2.Put the oil and honey in a large saucepan & heat until theingredients are melted together. Stir in the dried mixed fruit,grated apple, and oats and stir well.
3.Skin and mash the 2 bananas, then add to the oat mixture.Stir again so that it’s well combined. Press the mixture intoa 15cm square brownie tin. I use a non-stick baking tin andthere is no need to grease, dust or line it when you’remaking flapjacks.
4.Put the tins in the oven for 25-35 minutes. Once they startto turn golden brown on top, remove and allow to cool for 30minutes before using a knife to impress the flapjack shapeson top of the mixture. Wait until fully cool before breakinginto the pieces you’ve impressed.
