Homemade Granola Bar Directions

  • Pour 1/2  cup of almonds, 1/2 cup of pecans and 1/2 cup of rolled oats into a food processor and process them into a coarse meal.
  • With a knife, chop the remaining raw nuts and 1 cup of dried fruit into half-pea-sized pieces. Mix them in a bowl with the coarse meal.
