These days i feel like the majority of my meals come in bar form. Granola bars have been my go to thing since Keegan was born. They are ridiculously easy to make and they are fully of healthy goodness. If you have never made them you should give it a try! The best part about making granola bars is that you can make them with any add ins that you want.
1 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
2 cups oatmeal
2/3 cups whole grain cereal (I use mini wheats crushed up)
1/2 cup of flax seed or wheat germ
1 cup honey (or maple syrup or a mixture)
2/3 cups peanut butter or apple sauce (this helps keep everything together)
2 cups add in (unsweetened coconut, nuts, raisins, craisens, dried blueberries, chocolate chips,or anything else you fancy)
Note: depending on what add ins i use in i like to put spices in as well. cinnamon, nutmeg, or cocoa powder are usually what i use.
This weekend i made an apple pie granola bar with raisins (pictured above on the left). I got the idea from my dear friend Nikki's post about granola bars. I did mine just a tad different but they turned out FANTASTIC! Then i made a chocolate coconut granola bar (pictured on the right) and its just as yummy.
If you try this recipe i would love to hear what you put in yours! Have fun with it, the possibilities are endless!
