2 point granola bars

This is a recipe that a coworker gave to me and the bars are absolutely delicious. I tweaked it just a bit and here is that version.

  • 4 c Old-fashioned or steel cut oats (not Quick)
  • 1 c wheat bran
  • 1/4 c soy protein powder
  • 1/2 c roasted peanuts coarsely chopped
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c light corn syrup
  • 1/2 c sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix first four ingredients together in a large bowl. In a small saucepan mix 1/4 c maple syrup and 1/4 c corn syrup and bring to boil. Coat oat mixture with hot syrup mixture and spread into one very large or two 13 x 9” pans and toast for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool for a few minutes so the rest of the syrup doesn’t make it soggy.

Boil 1/4 brown sugar, 1/4 c maple syrup, and 1/4 c corn syrup for 2 minutes. Take off heat and add vanilla. Mix well with toasted oat mixture.

Allow to cool so chocolate chips won’t melt, then add chips and spread into 1 very large or 2 pans depending on the thickness you want. Let set at room temp or in the fridge and cut into 24 pieces.
