Cranberry Granola Bars

This recipe is very similar to the Chocolate Granola Bar recipe, but with slightly adjusted proportions. This should work equally well with any other dried fruit. I usually use dried apricots nowadays. See the Nutty Apricot Granola Bars for an more recent version.

Quantity Ingredient
3 cups Rolled (Large Flake) Oats
1 1/2 cups Additional Grains/Cereals
1/2 cup Coconut
1 1/2 cups Dried Cranberries
1 1/2 cup Water
6 tbsp Cornstarch
1/4 cup Honey/Maple Syrup or 2.5 tbsp Brown/Maple Sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 300 F (150 C)
  2. In a bowl, mix the rolled oats, grains, cranberries and coconut.
  3. Measure the water
  4. Add the sweetener to the water, using displacement to confirm that 1/4 cup is added
  5. Add the cornstarch to the water (keep in the measuring cup). Stir the cornstarch until consistently mixed.
  6. Heat a large frying pan/stir fry pan on the stovetop at high heat, then add the cornstarch/water/sweetner mixture. Stir and wait until the mixture is a consistent gel.
  7. Add rolled oats/coconut/cranberry/grain mixture and mix until evenly coated. Scoop onto a baking sheet, and flatten/shape as desired.
  8. Bake for approximately 20 minutes.
  9. Cut to desired size.
