Did you know that most of the granola bars you buy in the grocery store are not actually good for you? They are often loaded with sugar, sodium, and/or ingredients you can’t even pronounce. However, we all know granola bars are such an easy snack. That’s why I created these no-bake granola bars to help you out!
Why you’ll love these no-bake granola bars:
No-Bake: Just like in the name, you don’t even have to bake these. So easy!
Quick: Have them ready in 10-minutes aka in a shorter time then it would take you to drive to the grocery store
Healthy: You can pronounce everything that goes into these. They’re so good for you!
Honey: I know, these aren’t vegan if they have honey. So if you want a vegan version, just simply swap the honey for maple syrup. Voila!
Flaxseeds: Loaded with nutrients, flaxseed is high in omega-3 fatty acids, rich in fiber, and so good for your body. Throw them into smoothies, sprinkle on salads, or add to baking.
Chia Seeds: Chia seeds contain quercetin, which is an antioxidant that helps your body against developing several health conditions. They are also high in fiber!
Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds are a great source of magnesium and can help with maintaining both your cholesterol and blood pressure.
How to make no-bake granola bars:
Prepare an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper and set it aside.
Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Mix to combine.
Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared pan and press down.
Set in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
Cut into 8 equal pieces. Enjoy!!
Expert Tips & FAQ:
Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for 1 – 2 months. HOT TIP- you can individually wrap the granola bars in plastic wrap to make it easy to grab and go!
Chocolate Chips: We used a combo of white, dark, and butterscotch chips! Have fun and use your favorite chocolate chips or chocolate bar!
Peanut Butter: Use ANY nut butter OR combo of nuts/trail mix that you want. Again, you get to customize it! Try using almond butter, coconut flakes, and dried cranberries – this is a combo that Tori loves!
How do I make this vegan? To make this completely vegan, be sure to use maple syrup in the place of honey and dairy-free chocolate chips!
Tip for Cutting: Cut these into whatever sized pieces you would like, or make them into energy bites!
