These homemade granola bars are not only good for you, but they taste great too! And with ZERO unpronounceable ingredients, they are truly a win win win!
I love protein bars and granola bars for an easy, quick snack. But with many of the options at the supermarket containing tons of processed ingredients, I’ve been buying them a lot less. Hence, my inspiration to make my own!
I don’t know why it took me so long to make my own. They are truly EASY to prepare. Just toast your oats and nuts on a baking sheet.
Then toss them together with all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Then press your mixture into a 9″x 9″ baking pan. Make sure to really press the mixture down firmly so they will hold when it’s time to cut them. I use the bottom of a measuring cup to help press down, but anything with a firm solid base will do the trick!
Freeze the mixture for at least 30 minutes or longer. Then cut your granola into 10 bars or 20 squares, and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer to maintain their shape and freshness.
