Ingredients

Cranberry Granola Bars (Vegan & Gluten Free)

  • 3/4 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup seeds of choice (I mixed sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and linseed)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Gluten Advice

Pure oats are naturally gluten free. However, they are often contaminated due to being grown near other grains that do contain gluten. It is therefore best to check that the oats you are buying are 100% gluten free.

How to make Cranberry Granola Bars (Vegan & Gluten Free)

1. Pre-heat your oven to 325F/160C/gas mark 3.

2. Line an 8×8 square tin with baking/parchment paper.

3. In a food processor, blend the oats until fine, then place in a large bowl.

4. Add the dates and water to the processor and blend until you have a nice smooth consistency. Drop in the vanilla extract now.

5. Now add the liquid to the oats, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Mix well with a wooden spoon until all combined.

6. Transfer this to your prepared tin and smooth out until you have a flat, smooth surface. Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes. It will become nice and firm when you press it.

7. Once done, leave to sit for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before slicing.
