Bowl me Over Granola…. Take #2

My second attempt in the search for the perfect and perfectly healthy granola bar (See Take # 1)


This is my Mom’s recipe: there will be butter and sugar, so they will be delicious.


Hypothesis correct. Taste Test: Tick!



  • 300g flour (try wholewheat for added fibre)
  • 300g oats
  • 300g sugar
  • 100g linseeds
  • 200g cranberries
  • 100g pumpkin seeds
  • 100g sesame seeds
  • 2 chopped apples
  • 1 egg
  • 50 honey
  • 350g melted butter

Bring the butter, sugar, and honey to the boil and melt. When totally cooled down, add the egg. (Please wait until it cools down, otherwise you will have honey-coated scrambled egg).

Mix all the ingredients into the honey and butter mixture, then press into a greased baking pan and bake for about 20 min at 180 degrees.


Upside: Nomnomnomnom!

The catch: A tad high in calories if you’re on a Herbalife weight loss programme. That being said.. everything in moderation! And these are totally worth an extra loop around the block!

Bowl me over Granola Take #3 will be my attempt at a “lighter” version.
