Delicious and easy!
I have found it is safer to make my own granola bars as so many store bought varieties are processed in facilities with peanuts. I also like the fact that these have much fewer ingredients, and all ingredients I can pronounce! The less processed the food is , the better. I used soy nut butter, but you can use any nut butter or nut butter substitute. The nutritional information will vary but should be fairly similar. Also if you are not avoiding nuts, you can add some in too. I recommend chopping them up a bit though. The nice thing about these bars is that you can add in whatever you like- dried fruit, nuts, seeds, flax, etc! These take no time to make and do not involve the oven. I recommend storing in the fridge. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
2.5 cups rolled oats
.5 cup coconut oil, melted
.5 cup honey
.5 cup soy nut butter (or other nut butter)
3T mini chocolate chips
1.63 oz package Enjoylife Not Nuts seed and fruit (or other seed and fruit mix-ins)
Combine melted oil and honey in large bowl. Add rolled oats and nut butter. Mix until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips and seeds. Press mixture into a glass 9×13 pan. (No need to oil pan) Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours. Cut into 24 bars and store in airtight container in fridge for 5 days.

I cannot wait to try these. I just made homemade granola cereal today the week, it calls for honey and my son doesn’t like honey so we used pure maple syrup and it turned out great. How long does these last? My son takes the Annie’s granola bars to school for a snack for the week and I would love to just make our own to send with him. He loves the granola cereal so I am sure these would be great too.
Cindy, I keep in the fridge for 1 week with no problems!
This look so simple and delicious. I’ve been looking for a basic granola bar recipe. Thank you, and cheers!! 🙂
