Apricot Almond Granola (No Bake)

by Lauren on February 24, 2012

Is it possible to make no-bake granola?  Is it when you attempt to make no-bake granola bars that amount to a pile of crumbly pieces.  This past weekend, I tried to make a batch of my Apricot Cherry Almond No-Bake Granola bars and well…..you get the picture. 

 

So while these didn't exactly come out in the bar form, I was determined to salvage a perfectly good batch of sticky oats and dried fruit and called it granola. 

Apricot Almond Granola (No Bake) 

 

Ingredients: 

Dry:

  • 2 cups dry rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown rice cereal 
  • 2 tablespoons chia 
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Wet:

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 

 

Directions:

 Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.  In a separate small bowl, combine wet ingredients.  Microwave for 30 seconds.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir.  Place mixture in a shallow pan and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set.  

I store this in the fridge to avoid it from getting soggy.  If you like a chewy soft granola, this is for you.  So apparently not all of my cooking mishaps result in a total loss.  

It's always good to look at the glass half full and realize you can still make granola from granola bars.
