GDM is going on a 10-day, 700-some-odd mile bicycling trip and asked if I would make some muesli or granola bars. My favorite recipe was a King Arthur one, but they discontinued the product, so it is not on their website any longer.

I would appreciate any help here.

That one is adapted from the King Arthur recipe, so it might work for you!

I've used this base on a number of occassions, then you can add whatever extras you like:

Base Ingredients:
•4 cups rolled oats
•2 2/3 cup nuts / seeds
•1 cup shredded sweet coconut (optional – sub with additional fruit/nuts if desired)
•2 tsp cinnamon
•1/2 cup brown sugar
•1/2 cup maple syrup, honey, or pancake syrup
•1 1/2 tsp vanilla
•1/3 cup oil (or melted butter)
•1 tsp salt
•2 cups raisins (or other dried fruit combo)
•1 tsp almond extract (optional)
•2 Tbsp water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.

3. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup/honey, extract, vanilla, cinnamon, oil, water, and salt.

4. Combine both mixtures, then squeeze the granola together with your hands, then pour onto 2 sheet pans.

5. Cook for between 40 minutes to 1 hour, 15 minutes (depending on your pan and preferred consistency), stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.

6. Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins (and/or chocolate chips/M&Ms) and mix until evenly distributed.

To make it chunkier: While still warm, press the granola into a foil/wax paper lined pan. Allow granola to cool completely, peel foil off, then break into pieces.

To make bars: While still warm, press the granola into a foil/wax paper lined pan. Slice into bars, then allow granola to cool completely, peel foil off.

Other ingredient substitutions/options :
Dried banana chips
Dried cherries
M&Ms
Semi-sweet choc chips
Pumpkin seeds
Sunflower seeds
Dates
Craisins
Cranberries
1/2 cup Peanut butter

Here's another I've personally used:


Peanut Butter Granola Bars
Yield 12-16 granola squares


Ingredients:
•4 cups rolled oats
•2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)
•1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
•1 cup peanut butter, melted
•3/4 cup honey or brown rice syrup

Add ins:
•chocolate chips
•wheat germ
•flaxseed
•dried fruit
•other nuts
•seeds
•coconut

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine oats, chia seeds and peanuts. Add brown rice syrup (or honey) and mix to combine. Add melted peanut butter and mix until moistened. This works as a perfect, simple granola bar, but you can also throw in any add-ins at this time. Fold them into the dough. You may need to get in there with your hands and work the granola dough! If dough is still too dry (this can depend on your ingredients) add more peanut butter or syrup (or honey) 1 tablespoon at a time until moistened.

3. Press dough in a greased (non-stick spray) 9 x 13 baking dish. Press down on them with wax paper to make sure they’re really set. Bake for30 minutes.

4. Cool completely before cutting. When cutting use a large knife to cut in one smooth motion. (Using a small knife and sawing motion may result in the granola crumbling).

NOTE:
These also work as a great no-bake granola bar, however they came together really well and the chocolate chips melted as they got warm. If you want to make no-bakes, simply press the dough into the pan and refrigerate for 60 minutes.

One more :Smile:

I use this one as crumbles (for a breakfast cereal or snack) instead of a bar, but the cardamom it has a really great flavor.


Granola with Millet (Low Fat)


Ingredients:
•6 cups rolled oats (not quick/instant)
•1/2 cup millet or quinoa (uncooked)
•1 cup shredded coconut (substitute with additional fruit/nuts if desired)
•1 1/2 cups nuts / seeds
•1 tablespoon cinnamon
•1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
•1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)
•Dash of salt
•1/2 to 1 cup honey (or pancake syrup)
•2 tablespoons water
•1-2 cups dried fruit


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients from the oats down to the salt.

3. Drizzle the maple syrup/honey over the mixture and stir well with a wooden spoon, coating everything. (If you need more liquid, add a bit more maple syrup/honey or a bit of orange juice)

4. Add the water, then squeeze the mixture with your hands, again mixing well.

5. Spread the mixture onto 2 sheet pans and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown, checking and stirring occasionally so that nothing burns. If using coconut, add during the last 15 minutes of baking so that it doesn’t burn.

6. Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add dried fruit (and/or chocolate chips/M&Ms) and mix until evenly distributed. Allow to cool completely before packaging.

7. Store in a sealed container.


Serve with fresh fruit and yogurt or eat as a breakfast cereal.
