Tropical Crunch Bars

June 10, 2018

     The summer months are active times for everyone.  A friend asked me for a quick recipe for an on the go snack.   While granola type snacks usually aren't my thing, I decided to make an effort to come up with a relatively healthy, granola based snack bar.

     While I used a combination of dried tropical fruits, you can substitute any type of dried fruit and nut mixture in this recipe.  You can even substitute a pre-made trail mix.



1 cup of honey

1 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of water

1 cup granola (I prefer the whole grain rolled oats style)

1/4 cup of dried diced papaya

1/8 cup of peanut pieces

1/8 cup of chocolate chips

1/4 cup dried pineapple pieces

1/4 cup of crumbled dehydrated bananas

1/4 cup of sweetened shredded coconut

1 tablespoon of butter



Set asides the coconut.Combine the granola, fruits, peanuts and chocolate chipsin a mixing bowl. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with the tablespoon of butter.

In a sauce pan heat the honey, salt and water to a low boil.  Fold the heated mixture into the dry ingredients and spread evenly on the 9 x 13.  Sprinkle the top with the shredded coconut.  Allow to cool and slice into bars.
