Ingredients

  • 2 cups (200 g) sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup (55 g) walnuts
  • 1/2 cup (55 g) pecans
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) goji berries (or your favorite no-sugar added fruit)
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup (45 g) sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) golden flax meal
  • 1/4 cup (65 g) Lily's SF Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons (28 g) melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sweetener like Sukrin Icing or Swerve Confectioners
  • 1/3 cup Sukrin Fiber Syrup Clear (or Gold or VitaFiber or SF pancake syrup), 89 ml

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and place the rack to the middle position. Line a 13 x 9 inch baking dish or pan with parchment paper (or foil) by spraying the dish, lining the parchment up the sides and being careful to fit into the corners, and then spraying the parchment.
  • Place the sliced almonds into a food processor (or chop by hand) and process until they resemble oats. Place the chopped almonds into a medium bowl. Chop the pecans and walnuts into smaller pieces - I use a chef's knife. Add them to the almonds. Add the gogi berries, pumpkins seeds, sunflower seeds, golden flax meal, chocolate chips, cinnamon, ginger and powdered sweetener into the bowl. Mix thoroughly. Pour the butter over and mix again. Add the fiber syrup and mix one more time.
  • Pour the chewy granola bar mixture into the prepared baking dish and distribute as evenly as possible. Lay a piece of waxed paper on top of the mixture and using a flat bottomed glass, firmly press the granola mixture into the dish.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until it just begin to brown around the edges. Let rest in the dish for 10 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack by using the parchment to lift it out. Let it cool completely before cutting into 16 bars with a large, sharp chef's knife. Apply pressure in a downward motion and resist sawing back and forth. Store in an airtight container.
