I cannot believe I used to spend about $25 a month on granola bars! That’s 1/16th of my entire grocery budget for the month, ridiculous. During the spring I became determined to find a great granola bar recipe. I tried a bunch and either they were too dry, too sticky, or tasted bland. I finally came across this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. I am glad I did, it was an instant hit in our house. And I am happy to report I have been supermarket granola bar free for 3 months now:) Here is the recipe, trust me you are going to want to save this one!
1.5c ww flour
1tsp baking soda
1c softened butter ( I use coconut oil because it adds a delicious flavor to the bars)
Mix Ins ( 1 c of each)
Really you can use whatever your family likes best in their granola bars. Some of our favorite mix ins are:
raisins, unsweetened coconut shavings, sunflower seeds, mini chocolate chips, walnuts, peanut butter ( if you use PB than I eliminate butter/oil)
Mix butter/oil and honey together until thoroughly mixed. Add in all ingredients except for the mix ins. Once mixture is completely mixed through you can add your favorite mix ins.
Now bake at 325 degrees for 18-25 minutes. Just until lightly browned on the edges. Allow bars to cool completely before you cut them. I usually cut them into 24 bars and store them in airtight container.
This recipe usually lasts us 3 wks. Let me know if you try it and what you think. Enjoy!!
