Granola Bars

  • INGREDIENTS:
    • 1 1/2 cup of quick oats
    • 3/4 cup of almond butter or peanut butter (you can use creamy or crunchy)
    • 1/2 cup of honey or agave
    • 1 cup of trail mix (I used one with almonds and dark chocolate)
  • DIRECTIONS:
    1. Warm up the honey and nut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir (if still solid, warm up for an additional 30 seconds)
    2. Combine your oats and trail mix, and then add in the warmed honey and nut butter.
    3. Stir until all the oats coated
    4. Place the oats on a baking sheet and press down (you can also make in a tupperware if you don’t have a baking sheet
    5. Place in fridge or freezer for 20-30 min
    6. Cut and enjoy!
  • TIPS: I used a cup of trail mix because it was simple and I didn’t have to buy multiple ingredients. If you wanted, you could add a cup of almonds instead of trail mix! Also additional add-ins could be dried raisins, cranberries, or anything else you love in granola! If you are using crunchy nut butter, you may need more for than mixture than a creamy nut butter (see Cons)!
  • Pros: These are simple and easy. You can make these any way you like them! I have eaten them in yogurt or on their own. They are a great snack!
  • Cons: These guys are a little crumbly sometimes. Add in additional nut butter and honey if you find they are crumbling on you. These take a little more work than buying a pack of granola bars at the grocery, but I like these because I can make them personalized!
