  12. Place in freezer for an hour to set.
  13. Once set remove and cut into bars. I like to wrap each bar with a piece of parchment paper and keep all bars in the freezer.

Ingredients I used to make the granola bars:

Dates

I used Medjool dates in the recipe. Dates are a concentrated source of healthy nutrients. They offer a significant amount to fibre, vitamins and minerals.

Rolled Oats

I use certified gluten-free oats in the recipe for they add a chewiness to the bar. Oats are a whole grain that is a good source of vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.

Hazelnut Butter

I used hazelnut butter in this recipe but you could easily swap it for almond or cashew butter. Use sunflower seed butter is you are wanting a peanut-free alternative.

Walnuts, Almonds and Peanuts

Walnuts, almonds and peanuts are a good source of fibre, healthy fats and plant protein.

Pumpkin Seeds and Flax Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are a great source of plant protein and are high in magnesium and other minerals. Flax seeds are known as a super food and are loaded with nutrients like protein, fibre, omega 3 fatty acids and are a rich source of antioxidant properties.
