I have tried a lot of homemade granola bar recipes over the years but never found one that had the texture and flavour we were looking for without using a pile of sugar. Thankfully, one day I stumbled upon this one from Brown Eyed Baker and decided to try it. It instantly became a family favourite.
Unlike so many other homemade granola bars, this recipe does not use a lot of butter or sugar, you can easily substitute gluten-free ingredients, it has a tasty chewy texture, it’s peanut-free (which means it can go in my kids school lunches), and everyone in our house loves it. Even better, it comes together in less than ten minutes and requires no baking.
My kids love chocolate chips in their granola bars, but you can substitute any of your favourite add-ins. Try raisins, nuts, dried cranberries, or whatever your family favourite add-in happens to be. Whatever you choose, these non-processed granola bars are sure to be a hit in your house. Go ahead and try them. Chances are you have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now.
