You will love how easy these are to make.
My granola bar recipe only uses five ingredients making them so simple to whip up the night before so my family can grab them out the door the next day. I used almond butter in my recipe but you can substitute peanut butter for a different flavor.
Easy No Bake Homemade Granola Bar
Makes 12 bars
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup agave syrup or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· Combine the oatmeal, almond butter, chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and agave syrup in a medium size bowl. Stir until well combined.
· Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper, allowing the paper to fall over the edges. Press the oatmeal mixture into the pan.
· Place in the refrigerator for1 hour, or until firm. Remove paper from pan and then cut the large square in half. Then cut each half into 6 rectangles. Wrap bars individually with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
To make these granola bars healthier, add two tablespoons of chia seed, flax seed, nuts, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds. Just add 1 tablespoon more agave syrup for each addition.
