Calcium Rich Granola Bars

I cut back on my dairy consumption so I needed another source of calcium. I searched for calcium rich foods online and compiled a list. Then I mixed them together and turned them into granola bars. They are delicious and keep me satiated for hours!

Calcium Rich Granola Bars Makes 16 large bars
Roughly 275 mg of Calcium per bar

1/4 cup Chia Seeds

1 cup Sesame Seeds

1/4 cup Flax Seeds (ground)

1 cup Sunflower Seeds

4 cups Rolled Oats

16 Dried Figs chopped into small pieces (make sure stems are off)

1/2 cup Almond Butter

1/2 cup Blackstrap Molasses

1/4 cup Honey

1/4 cup Coconut Oil

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Press into logs and smash down. Put in a 350 degree oven for ten minutes and press down bars with the backside of a spatula. Cook for another five minutes and cool.

* I was short on molasses the last time I made this and the dough would not form into bars. I split the recipe two and made the first half into granola and the second I added water and let it sit while the granola baked. I was then able to make bars with the remainder. The granola was so good with my homemade almond milk! One cup of granola equals 551 mg of calcium.
