Homemade Granola Bars‏

(Vegetarian, Gluten free, and Paleo recipe)

Granola is great for breakfast since it is filling and satisfying. It usually consists of rolled oats, nuts, honey and something to sweeten it up just a little, like brown sugar. This recipe is slightly different as it does not contain any oats. It is also a great snack for when you are hungry, but want a healthier alternative. Granola bars are such a great and versatile treat that it is also used for hiking, toppings for cake, toppings for yogurt, camping and much more.

I love to bake and try new things. With kids going back to school soon, I need something that is quick to make, they can grab while walking out the door and can even pack for their lunch. I decided to make my Homemade Granola Bars. When my kids were little, I would buy these buy the box at my local grocer. I soon found out just how easy they are to make and are much healthier, I stopped buying them by the box and make my own. This recipe is really fun to make and kids can help out.

  1. This is fabulous! what a great recipe. We buy granola bars weekly but as we all know homemade is always better and cheaper to. And the recipe is so straight forward and simple. Thank you for sharing

  2. This looks good for my family, but at the beginning of the article you mentioned a lot of leftover rolled oats, but
    I don’t see them in this granola bar recipe. Do you have another recipe that uses the oats? Thanks.
