Thermomix Granola Bars

Crunchy and delicious home baked Thermomix Granola Bars made with oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, desiccated coconut, honey and cinnamon. Once you make these there’s no going back to supermarket ones again!

These nourishing granola bars are super easy to make in the Thermomix and are perfect for lunchboxes, after school snacks or anytime you feel like a sweet treat.

I’ve never been one to buy granola bars from the supermarket – they are so overpriced and full of refined sugar. It always baffles me as to why they display them in the health food aisle as clearly they are not health food worthy. 

This recipe is refined sugar free but contains a lot of honey to bind all the ingredients together. Honey does have some health benefits but is still a type of sugar. If you’re after a lower fructose alternative then this recipe also works with rice malt syrup.

How to make Thermomix Granola Bars Step by Step

Making these granola bars could not be easier, just weigh all the ingredients into the Thermomix bowl then mix a couple of times and it’s ready to be baked.

How to bake it:-

  1. Pour the mixture into a tin lined with grease proof paper.
  2. Press down firmly with the back of a spoon until the surface is flat (it doesn’t matter if it’s a little bit wonky)
  3. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until it turns a lovely golden brown colour.

Once baked and out of the oven, it’s important to leave in the tin to cool off as it will still be soft. You can cut into bars whilst it’s still a little bit warm or leave to cool completely. For this recipe, I use a 20cm x 20cm tin which produced eight good sized bars but they could be cut into smaller portions if you want.

These are great for big batch cooking at the weekend and they also freeze well so you’ll always have some on hand.
