Toddler Snack – Granola Bars



Yummy!Yummy!

I don't know about you but I love having some healthy snacks on hand.

Super Baby Food – Ruth Yaron

1.5 cups rolled oats
¼ cup wheat germ
¼ cup ground nuts (I grounded almonds)
¼ cup nonfat dairy milk
½ cup dried fruit
¼ tsp cinnamon

1 beaten egg
¼ cup melted butter or oil
5 tablespoons of honey (I oiled spoon first and honey slid off)
¼ tsp vanilla

Mix all dry ingredients.
Mix wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients.
Add more honey to moisten or dried oats to dry if necessary.
Press into 8 x 8 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, cool, and cut into bars.

I'd like to add ground flax seed - how much do you think would be good?

I just got a juicer & used it for the first time this morning.. I guess if I blend the juice with a banana I can add the flax to it :ponder: And apparently the pulp of the fruit & veg is great to cook with :shrug:

Finn - yes - you need to grind or crush the flax for the body to absorb, otherwise it goes right through. I have a coffee grinder I put mine in then leave the excess in the refrigerator.

Oh, I'll make those for sure! Granola bars are rare and expensive over here. I'll add some flax seeds to them too. BTW, I read somewhere that they need to be crushed if you want your body to absorb the maximum nutrients. Karma, I also add psyllium to my yogurt. I read that it's super healthy and it helps digestion and ''elimination''.

I get mine in bulk and they are identified as Rolled Oats. I just looked at my oat cereal box and they are listed as Quick... so yeah I think you should be able to know the difference, i.e. they won't be listed as just oats.

Thanks GirlC. So it will say rolled oats on the package?
GirlC GirlC 5 years 19 weeks
It occurred to me.. be sure to use the rolled oats and not quick oats. I think there will be a difference.

I got a mixed one. I think there were raisins, cranberries, dates, peaches, and bananas.
