Healthy Homemade Granola Bars
Made with whole, real ingredients; these are better for you than the processed/packaged alternatives in the stores which are laden with high-fructose corn syrup, sugars, and un-recognizable ingredients.
Prep Time10 mins
Refridgerating Time1 hr
Total Time10 mins
- 2/3 cup almond butter you could also use peanut butter which is cheaper, or sunflower seed butter, if you have nut allergies
- 2/3 cup virgin coconut oil
- 2/3 cup honey raw is best
- 2 cup oats gluten-free if desired
- 2 cups total of any add-ins you'd like such as chopped nuts, dried fruit, dark chocolate bits, coconut flakes, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc. I use my large 4-cup measuring cup and just dump in ingredients until it's at 2 cups.
Mix almond butter, coconut oil and honey together in a small pot and warm until everything is melted. Stir together.
Add oats. Add the rest and stir until well combined. (If using chocolate chips be sure to cool the honey mixture completely before adding the extras or else the chocolate chips will all melt).
Press into an 9x13 pan and refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars, wrap individually, and store in the fridge.
You could use this 9x13 pan, (the above photo is an 8x8 pan for when the recipe is halved).
