I wanted to make some granola bars to take skiing with us, we have to catch a really early train so it's best to take something with us. I asked about and a friend from the Japan Cooking Group sent me her favourite recipe, you can find it on her blog Recipes For Denny.
The recipe calls for 2.5 cups of nuts, I used a combo of chopped almonds, sunflower seeds, mixed seeds and puffed rice (yes, the dregs of the kitchen cupboard!) plus 100g choco chips and they are YUM!
For those in Japan, I found coconut oil at Yamaya, they have a 200g jar for about ¥700 and a 500g bottle for ¥900.
