Nutritional values

This granola bar recipe is a perfect pick-me-up when your energy levels are down. It contains oats, sugar, and nuts, which provide you with carbohydrates, fiber, fats, and protein. Even though it is a small snack, it will help to fill you up quickly. 

You can always substitute the sugar for coconut sugar and the flour for almond flour to have a slightly lower sugar content and higher fiber and nutrient content.

Preparation steps


Preheat the oven to 175°C / 350°F. Mix apricot jam and 2-3 tablespoon honey, if necessary slightly heat honey and let cool again. Mix oats, hazelnuts, almonds, cinnamon, and sugar in a bowl. Remove about a quarter of the mixture and set aside.
