My daughter loves granola bars but the packaged ones just seem like a candy bar that's packed with sugar. These are a great alternative because you can control the quality of the ingredients and the sugar. They are also the perfect treat to take on the go!
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup ground flax seed
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated. Roll approximately 2 tablespoons into a ball and place on parchment lined sheet or press into a 9 x 9 inch pan to cut into rectangles. Chill in fridge for about 30 minutes until they are set. Once chilled place into airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
*Play around with your flavors in this granola, feel free to add in your favorite dried fruits and sweet chips or nuts!
