No-Bake Granola Bars from Yee Ling's Blog

Ever since Mommy Ling gave Mamarazzi a taste of the Granola Bars that she made, Mamarazzi had wanted to try making it.


Found Jaya Grocer giving having offer of Organic Rolled Oats. Two packets for RM13 plus only. Cheap.

Came home and try making it. Bits of nuts, dried fruits and seeds...

as instructed...toast the seeds and nuts a bit...Then mix in the dried fruit and the caramised brown sugar, honey and butter. 




Put into a flat container and press it....follow by chilling it in the fridge for about half an hour. 

Meantime.....I become a bird and pick up all the strayed seed from the bowl and eat lo....mmm...nice.


The end product....Mamarazzi still need to learn how to "cut" the thing properly la...Looks a bit ugly but edible.


One for me...one for Mamarazzi...two for me...one for Mamarazzi..... good ah my Maths.

After that, mamarazzi tried using Almonds to make...i didn't like it coz too hard. Not sweet enough.

Well, here is the recipe...copied and modified from Mommy Ling's Blog

Ingredients:
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped pecan nuts
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup of melon seeds
2 tbs of sesame seeds
1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries, apricots and raisin)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
60g butter
1/2 tsp vanilla essence(forgotten to add !!!)
pinch salt (omitted)

Method:
1. Toast the oats, seeds and nuts separately in a pan/wok or whatever you are using till fragrant. Separately ah....don't toast together al else will have unsightly black crumbs. Mamarazzi's sesame hangus-ed! Coz it's smaller size than the rest mah. Put aside.

2. Then add butter, honey, brown sugar and salt. Cook until bubbling and then continue to cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla; which Mamarazzi forgot. Pour over oat mixture and stir well until evenly coated.

3. No suitable baking pan so mamarazzi used a Tupperware container. Put baking paper in it and pour the mixture in. She hates to get her fingers sticky so she used the senduk nasi (what do you call that in English ah?) to press the mixture to make it firm.

4. Sumbat into the fridge for 30 mins or in her case till she recall about it. Took the whole thing up from the Tupperware container and cut withe a serrated knife. Haiz....Lesen lembu hence the edges looks so ugly.

Can be store at room temperature but she wrapped each in clinging wrap and stuffed into fridge. Easier to take and eat. Idea from Mommy Ling.

Ahem....as usual.... please hop over to her blog from a proper recipe and method.

  1. I am impressed! In the 1970's I used to make my own granola. It was all the rage then, hippies did granola, tie dying, and macrame. But I only made the granola, you went several steps further by doing the pan and cutting. Wish I could taste it. Shape does not matter, only taste!

  3. Oohh, I saw this in your FB and you asked me to try to make it.. Looks simple, but I don't have all the ingredients ready.. I like the caramel (sugar, butter).. If I make, I will pour EXTRA caramel on the bars, haha..

    It really looks good, especially granola bars are getting so expensive in the supermarket.. A pack of Kellogg's muesli bars is RM12 for only 6 bars.. And only as long as my ring finger.. Mahal dou...

    Am bookmarking this.. Ingredients look simple, easy to make.. Just have to make effort to go buy the ingredients like dried fruits and nuts..

  15. I like this very much when my dear made it for me too! :)

    It's very good when eaten chilled and makes for a great breakfast with the "slower burn" of oats (fiber, harder to digest so it takes longer and produces energy for longer) vs a "fast burn" breakfast like sugary cereal (which digest fast and makes you sleepy and hungry after a while).
