Easy granola bar recipe
Making your own granola bars at home couldn’t be easier, and this recipe gives you tons of options to meet your family’s personal dietary needs.
Can’t have peanut butter? Prepare DIY granola bars with almond butter, sun butter, coconut butter, or regular spread.
Change up the flavor by adding a handful of mini chocolate chips, chia seeds, crushed cereal (for crunchy granola bars) or dried fruits like raisins, cranberries or bananas.
Use pure maple syrup, honey or agave for any sweetener and flour of your choice (if using coconut flour, only use enough to make cookie dough) .
You can even replace some of the flour with protein powder!
Make it a full breakfast by serving the bars with an avocado smoothie, strawberry smoothie, or homemade peanut butter and banana smoothie.
How to make granola bars
Combine all of your ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Toss everything until well combined, then transfer to an 8-inch pan lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.
Place a second sheet of wax or parchment on top, spreading the mixture evenly throughout the pan until it fills the bottom.
For no-bake granola bars, simply refrigerate or freeze until firm. Otherwise, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and bake on the middle oven rack for 12 minutes.
Cut into bars or squares.
