Maple Pecan Granola Bars

sweet maple syrup and crunchy pecans are a lovely combination in these healthy granola bars.


3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 mashed banana
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp maple extract
Combine oats, flax, raisins and pecans in a large bowl. In another bowl mix the remaining ingredients and add them to oat mixture. Stir together until fully combined. Place in a greased 9×12″ baking dish and bake at 350F for 20 minutes (longer if you like them crispy). Cut them into bars while they’re still hot.
I threw these together to take to a friend who just had her third baby. I remember how hard it was to grab a healthy bite to eat when nursing a newborn, so I figured granola bars would be the perfect thing. I’ve made them a couple times since then, changing them slightly each time, and I’m very happy with the resulting recipe. The whole family was happy too; they didn’t last very long at our house at all. Cole says these are ‘sooooo yummy’ and I agree!
