1 1/2 cup rice puffs 22 g
120 g quinoa flakes 1 1/4 cup
1 1/4 cup rolled oats 120 g
1/2 cup grated coconut 40 g
1/3 cup almonds, finely chopped 45 g
2/3 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped 90 g
1/4 cup flax seeds, ground 45 g
3 eggs size large
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
1/3 cup honey 130 g
4 tbsp almond butter 65 g

Before you start

A mill or food processor will be very useful to grind the flax seeds.


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Line one or multiple 20 cm (8 in) square baking pans with parchment paper, according to number of servings. Grind the flax seeds, then set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the rice puffs, quinoa flakes, rolled oats, grated coconut, almonds, dried cranberries, and flax seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, canola oil, honey, and almond butter. Mix well with a whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry one then mix well to ensure all ingredients are coated.
  5. Place mixture into prepared baking pan(s). Press the mixture so it is compact. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25-30 min. It is also possible to bake the mixture in a muffin pan. To do so, adjust baking time to 12-15 min.
  6. Take the pan(s) out of the oven, then let cool at least 30 min. Cut each square into 12 bars then serve.


The granola bars can be kept in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or 1 month in the freezer.
