Granola Bar — Super Healthy Breakfast

Granola bar can be used as a Breakfast item or also as a snack item, it consists of nutritious healthy ingredients like oats, nuts and  honey , here I have used wheat bran also to make it more nutritious .20170516_133923

The ingredients are mixed and baked until crisp and golden brown in colour.

It is eaten with fresh milk, smoothies, yoghurt or fresh fruits

It is packed with nutrition , and high in calories , it is good for children’s — when they are growing up and they refuse to have their normal cereal and milk , you can make these granola bars   to make breakfast a tid bit interesting .

  9. I used to make this at home, but Is it ok to heat honey? I read that heating honey makes it toxic.
