How did the name for this granola bar get sooo long?!?

IMG_8215Don’t be fooled by the long name though, this recipe is easy breezy and super yummy.

1/4 cup raisins

Next I added 1/8 cup honey and 1/3 cup almond butter, and mixed everything.

I lined my square pan with baking paper, poured the granola mixture into it. I leveled it and using another sheet of baking paper, I pressed down to compact it. In the refrigerator it went for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, I cut the granola block into bars.

For the dark chocolate coat:

On a double boiler, I melted dairy free dark chocolate. I allowed it to cool for 5 minutes, then I dipped by granola bar in. At the same time using a spoon to make sure everything is covered in chocolate. I laid them on a cooling rack with a plate in the bottom for any excess chocolate drippings, and in the freezer it went for 5 minutes.

Afterwards, I moved them to the refrigerator for 1 hour.

I wrapped my bars in aluminum foil and then placed them in a tupperware and in the frig it went again. I did keep 1 on my counter top so see if they will sit well in room temperature. I’ll add my findings later on in this post.
