Homemade Granola Bars Recipe

"A simple, soft, and chewy homemade granola bar recipe that’s perfectly delicious and a perfect afternoon snack idea. These honey granola bars are so easy and wholesome. They are naturally sweetened and a gluten-free snack. There are several substitutes for nuts in this recipe. You can use a mix of nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds, or peanuts would all work well. Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds would be great options too. You could also add up to 1/4 cup flax seeds if you wish."


Preparation Time20 min


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  5. Add peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract in another bowl.

  6. Stir until well blended.

  7. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients.
