No need to buy granola bars… make your own at home. These Honey Granola Bars Recipe has just a few ingredients and are all natural, high in fiber and are low in sugar.
Toast oats at 425 for 8-12 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep from burning. Remove when oats are a golden brown. Reduce heat to 350 degrees.
Heat honey and peanut butter either on the stove or in the microwave just enough so that the two can combine and become smooth.
Add the oats and remaining ingredients to the honey/peanut butter mixture. Combine well. Press down in a 9x13 pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven, turn off oven, and spread the chocolate chips on the top of the bars. Place in cooling oven for a minute or two to melt the chocolate chips if needed. Spread chocolate evenly using a spatula. Cool completely before cutting.
I’m always looking for healthy treats. This is one that I made for a hike I was going on with a couple of friends. I made some with the chocolate and some without.
The ones without were perfect for the hike. A nice power protein treat which was exactly what I needed after the climb up Mission Peak in Fremont. Here we are at the peak… I don’t know if I would have made it without these granola bars!
Well, that’s all I have to say so Enjoy!
