Preparations:

Delve into the art of crafting nutritious and delectable Nutty Granola Bars.

 

Instructions:

Crafting Nutty Goodness:

  1. Begin your culinary journey by prepping a parchment-lined baking pan, ensuring a seamless transition from mixing bowl to oven.
  2. Employ the “Air Fry” function on your air fryer, setting the temperature to 360 degrees F. With your settings in place, press the “Start” key, ready to transform your ingredients into a wholesome delight.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, embark on the blending of dry ingredients. Combine almond meal, rolled oats, and ground almonds to create a foundation of wholesome goodness that’s both nourishing and satisfying.

 

Infusing Natural Sweetness:

  1. In a separate bowl, let the sweetness flow as you mix the wet ingredients. The harmony of packed dates, raisins, honey, almond butter (or peanut butter), and vanilla extract will infuse your bars with natural and irresistible sweetness.
  2. Unite the wet mixture with the dry ingredients, stirring them together to form a cohesive batter that’s brimming with flavor and nourishment.

 

Creating Nutty Indulgence:

  1. It’s time to incorporate the nutty goodness that defines these granola bars. Add the roughly chopped walnuts (or peanuts) to the mixture, ensuring an even distribution of crunch and nutty delight.
  2. Press the amalgamation of ingredients onto the parchment-lined baking pan, crafting a uniform layer that’s ready to be transformed into a batch of irresistible granola bars.

 

Golden Transformation:

  1. Bake your bars within the confines of the air fryer for approximately 15 minutes. As they undergo their golden transformation, your kitchen will be graced with the aroma of nutty indulgence.
  2. Once the bars have achieved their desired golden hue, allow them to cool on a wire rack for about 20 minutes. This period of patience ensures that the bars set and attain their perfect texture, ready to be sliced into individual portions.

 

Nourish and Enjoy:

  1. With the cooling complete, your Nutty Granola Bars are ready to be savored. Each bite is a harmonious fusion of textures—crunchy from the nuts, chewy from the dried fruits, and a touch of indulgence from the natural sweetness.
