Simple Soaked Granola Bars

This is a quick recipe, and nice big batch lasts me a good month or so. They pack easy from freezer to lunchbox, thawing perfectly by lunchtime.

  • The night before you want to bake off the bars, put the oats, sunflower seeds, sea salt, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Fill the bowl up with water to completely cover the mixture – enough that you can stir to combine. This soaking process will help the oats and seeds digest better.
  • After the oat/seed mixture has soaked 8-12 hours, add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
  • Spread the mixture onto silpat lined jelly roll pans – you will need 2. You could butter your pans if you don’t have Silpat.
  • Bake both sheets at 350 degrees an hour to an hour and 15 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through.
  • Use a pizza cutter (or knife) to slice into the size bars you want. Let them cool before removing from the pan.
