The Best Granola Bars Recipe!

Granola bars are one of those items that I personally know many people think is a “healthy” snack. Though this may be true for some kinds, many of them contain added sugar and preservatives that are not necessary, nor healthy.

This simple at home recipe is a great substitute for your on-the-go snack and can be stored in the fridge for quick access.

Let’s get started!

granola stitchyou will need:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 3/4 cup date paste (use less if you don’t like dates)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2 Tbsp flax seeds
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup additional water for the dates
  • optional (but recommended!): 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or 120g melted chocolate on top (which is what I did!)
  • optional: 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

 

How-to:

  1. combine flax seeds with the water and whisk thoroughly
  2. add date paste along with additional water, heat a little on the stove till dates melt thoroughly
  3. allow to cool before adding honey and almond butter
  4. in a separate bowl, add oats, seeds, and nuts and mix thoroughly
  5. combine both bowls together and mix well, then lay it on an oven tray
  6. cook for about 15-20 minutes (this is just so that the granola gets crunchy, but no ingredients actually need “cooking”) and then allow to cool before adding chocolate
  7. heat the chocolate, layer drizzle it on top on the crunchy granola
  8. cool for about 30-45 minutes before you indulge!

YUM!!
