Granola Bars

*From Holly (founder Club Fit Yummy Mummy )

2 cups whole oats (or porridge oats)
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
4 tablespoons of whole flaxseeds (linseeds)
4 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder
2 tablespoons of honey
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of maple syrup

1. In a large bowl combine the oats, walnuts, flax seeds, raisins and whey protein powder.
2. Add the honey, syrup, vanilla extract and salt.
3. Stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. At first it will seem too dry, but continue stirring and it will eventually blend.
4. Coat a clean, dry 8x8-inch baking dish with olive oil cooking spray, then press the mixture into the bottom of the dish.utes
5. The mixture should extend to all corners of the dish evenly and it should be about 1-inch thick.
6. You can use a smaller dish for thicker chewier bars if you wish.7. Bake at 180 degrees centigrade (350-degrees F or gas mark 4) for 10 minutes.
