Homemade granola bars are the perfect healthy snack to take with you wherever you go. The steam function of the Anova Precision Oven gives these granola bars a crunchy golden exterior and a soft chewy interior. After baking, the granola must cool in the pan until just barely warm on top. If the granola cracks when you lift it from the pan, don’t worry! Simply press it firmly back together. Using a very sharp knife to cut the granola bars will create clean lines and prevent crumbling. These bars can be stored at room temperature, but will firm up even more if kept in the refrigerator. Feel free to swap in your favorite nuts, dried fruit, and nut butters.

6. Cool

Cool granola in the pan set on a wire rack for 1 hour. They should just barely be warm on top.

Using the overhanging parchment, lift the granola onto a cutting board. If it cracks, press it firmly back together. With a sharp knife, cut in half into two equal rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 4 bars. Firmly compress each bar by hand to reinforce the shape.

8. Serve and Store

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer up to 3 months. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
