No-bake granola bars!! Who wouldn't love it? When I saw this easy no-bake granola bars, I just had to try it. A healthy more natural piece of granola bar is selling for $1.80 or more in a grocery store. That was pricey if you asked me. With this easy recipe, you can make a batch and grab one on the go or as a snack, nothing beat homemade. This would make a healthy school snack for my girls in the coming school year too.
These granola bars are delicious. Soft and chewy with the taste of peanut butter and all the goodies I put in there. I added chocolate chips because my girls loved it, but you can certainly omit it.
Spread it out on a foil lined baking sheet and refrigerate.
Recipe adapted from FOOD 52 with some changes.
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup pure honey
1/8 tsp. rock salt (or sea salt)
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup broken cashew nuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
Mix together in a bowl
1. In a big bowl. Add in (A). Whisk until combined.
2. Add in (B), stir with a spatula until everything is sticky and mixed well. If it's too dry, add more honey.
3. Line a baking dish with alum. foil. Pour content on it and shape and press well into the baking dish. [I sprinkled some chia seeds on top at this stage, but it's optional.] Refrigerate for 4 hours. Cut into bar, wrap with cling wrap, put into an air-tight container and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
*These bars will last for 2 weeks in the fridge. However, I don't think it would last this long in my house as it was simply delicious!!*
