Gingerbread granola bars are a delicious recipe for the holiday season. They’re a delicious, comforting snack for a cold afternoon, and they make your house smell amazing. My children don’t always like ginger, but they do love it in these bars.
You can bake a batch of these for a unique homemade holiday gift. These gingerbread granola bars are a bit sweeter than most of my baked goods, but it’s appropriate as a holiday treat. The teachers at school, the crossing guard, and grandma will all thank you for a box of these.
Gingerbread Granola Bars
$.55 per serving
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup melted coconut oil or butter
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
- 1 cup raisins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch pan.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
In a large bowl, mix together the coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture.
Add the oats, nuts, and raisins, and stir to combine evenly.
Press the dough evenly into the 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the edges are beginning to get brown.
Cool completely on a wire rack and cut into 14 bars. If you try to cut them before they’re cool, it’s likely that the bars will fall apart. Store them in an airtight container or freeze.
