Two weeks ago, my friend made some unbelievably tasty and healthy granola bars.  Kids loved them, adults devoured them. She found the recipe here. I’ve been experimenting with the recipe since then and came up with the “Ultimate Healthy Mama” version of it. Enjoy!
Ingredients:
    2 grated fresh apples

    2 mashed ripe bananas

    1/2 cup unsulphured molasses

    2 cups rolled oats

    1 cup ground flaxseed

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 cup coconut oil

    1/2 cup almond flour

    1 cup kamut flour

    Additions (optional) raisins or cranberries (soaked in hot water for 10 minutes then drained, slices of dry apricots, pumpkin or sunflower seeds (raw,) shredded coconut, walnut or pecan pieces.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (including oats) and whisk together until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients until well blended.  Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and blend gently until well moistened. Add any of the suggested additions now. Mixture should be moist but not too wet. If it seems too dry and crumbly, add another banana and if it is too wet, add some more kamut flour.

    Line a 9in x 13in pan with parchment paper and press mixture into pan.  Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Cut into bars while warm, but let cool completely before removing from pan.
