So I'm always in search of a new snack for myself and my kids. Granola bars are great way to go, but no one likes all the junk in them, and if you've ever purchased the "healthy" bars then you know they are not budget friendly for a family.
Inspired by THIS post on the Etsy blog I thought I would try my hand at my own. Cooking is always relaxing for me and eating healthy and giving my kids healthy options is important too, this is not always easy if you have a nutty schedule like me. Trying to simplify things as much as possible really helps make this a reality. My own simple - healthy granola bars are also Gluten Free, we have a few kiddo's who come over to play who have wheat allergies and it's nice to have snack to offer that isn't always an apple.
For the original recipe unmodified you can find a link on my Pinterest Board HERE.
As a side note... I tend to skip exact measurements ( unless I"m doing some serious baking ) other wise I tend to eyeball it- these also do not have to be cut into bars- I broke mine up like peanut brittle - they taste great either way.
Simple GF Granola Bars-
GF rolled oats- I used around 2 cups - more can be added as needed.
A few spoonfulls of sugar free Almond Butter and natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
handfull of chocolate chips
handfull of dried cherries
Honey- around half a cup- or as much as needed to make the mixture "stick"
A splash of olive oil ( makes it easier to combine )
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix- a back of a spoon helps, but your hands work best here.
Line a sheet- pan with parchment paper and top with mixture, spread evenly to your desired thickness, I make mine about 1/4 to 1/2 inch high.
Bake for 10-15 min on 350F
Let cool completely, and pop in the fridge for a few minutes, this makes it easier to break it up or cut - your choice. Store in an airtight container.
