This is perhaps not the healthiest of granola bar recipes, but if you like orange and coconut,
you will find them to be very delicious (and as a bonus, they’re very easy to make).
As an aside, if you don’t have a place to buy walnuts in bulk, this will end up being a not-so-thrifty
recipe. I seriously cannot believe how much nuts cost at the grocery store.
Because I’m lazy about this sort of thing, I haven’t done a cost-comparison between these
and store-bought granola bars. I’m pretty sure they’re not more expensive, at least, and
they definitely produce less trash than packaged granola bars do.
Plus, they have no corn syrup and no preservatives either, which is always nice.
Orange-Coconut Granola Bars
* 4 cups quick-cooking oats
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
* 1 cup flaked coconut
* 3/4 cup butter, melted
* 3/4 cup orange marmalade
Mix oatmeal, brown sugar, salt, walnuts, and coconut in a bowl.
Add the orange marmalade and melted butter; mix well.
Spread evenly into a greased 10×15 inch jelly roll pan.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
I cut them into bars while they’re still a bit warm, and then I let them finish cooling. And of course, I store them in an airtight container. Enjoy!
