cups Cascadian Farm® organic fruit and nut granola
cup unsweetened applesauce
cup mild-flavor (light) molasses
cup sweetened dried cranberries
cup chopped dried apricots
Heat oven to 325°F. Line 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, extending paper over sides of pan, and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In food processor, pulse granola a few times to break up into smaller pieces. Set aside.
In large bowl, stir together applesauce, honey and molasses. Add granola, cranberries and apricots; stir thoroughly to combine. Pour mixture into pan; press firmly into pan.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Freeze uncovered 1 hour.
Using parchment paper, lift mixture from pan. Cut into bars. Place bars on paper-lined cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered at least 1 hour longer before serving. Store in freezer.
Substitute your own favorite dried fruits for the cranberries or apricots.
Store granola bars in freezer and take out in the morning as needed for an on-the-go breakfast.
