I am always a fan of granola bars. You can keep them in your bag, in your car, in your lunchbox, and have the perfect, energizing snack.
But, to tell you the truth, most granola bars that you buy from the grocery store are filled with yucky corn syrup and oils. Which is very upsetting, because most people buy granola bars assuming that they are a healthy choice.
I bet some of you have even tried to bake homemade granola bars before, but possibly ran into a couple problems. There was a lot of butter in the recipe, you had to bake them, they didn't stick together, you could not get them out of the pan. Also, sometimes you only want half of a granola bar, but once you open the package you feel committed. This recipe will solve all of your problems.
There is no butter, oil, added salt, added sugar, baking, or removing from a pan necessary. These require you to take one bowl, dump all of the ingredients in, stir it up, form it into balls, and eat it. Anytime you want. No commitment necessary. Here is the recipe:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup coconut
- 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 4 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- Dump all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
- Mix them together.
- Form into balls.
