Homemade Healthy & Delicious Granola Bars

8:30 AM

Dom and I are on the constant lookout for healthy snacks that actually taste good but aren't full of sugar.  We love granola bars, but finding ones that are actually healthy can be a bit of a challenge.  Not too long ago we decided we should try to make our own!  After a few failed attempts we found a recipe that is to die for and filled with healthy goodness!!

There are no real measurements for this one, since you kind of just mix it all together how you want and bake it.  Just make sure your base (we used oats) is the bulk of the recipe, and make sure there are enough wet ingredients to make it moist to bake!

Dry Ingredients
Oats
Organic rice poofs
Peanuts
Cashews (or almonds)
Sunflower kernels
Chia seeds
Dried dates
Dried cranberries
Craisins 
Dark Chocolate Chips (optional...but who wouldn't ;))

Wet Ingredients
Peanut Butter
Agave Nectar or Honey (we used agave, but I think honey would stick better!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites


1. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately.  
2. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients in batches to make sure it is very moist, but not too wet that it won't bake together
3. Bake at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until cake-y
4. Let cool before cutting into bars
5. Enjoy!!

I only got to eat one before heading out of town, and let's just say...there weren't any waiting for me when I got home!
