Granola bars are a great snack for breakfast, lunch, work, or even as a snack on the run. When made from scratch, granola bars can be really good for you too!
Another good thing about making granola bars yourself is the low risk of peanut allergens. Many granola bars sold in stores are not peanut free. Making granola bars at home is a quick and easy thing to do, everyone can enjoy them, and you will feel better knowing these granola bars are loaded with fiber, protein, minerals, and vitamins.
I have always loved granola bars. The sweet, salty, crunchy all coming together in every bite. Here is our version of a Peanut Free Granola Bar.
- 4c rolled oats
- 1c all purpose flour
- 1t baking soda
- 1t vanilla extract
- 1c butter, softened (this is important!)
- 1/2c honey
- 1/3c packed brown sugar
- 2c total of what ever other goodies you want in there.
Ideas of mix ins: peanut butter (For those without peanut allergies), shredded coconut, chocolate chips, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
Preheat oven to 325*F (165*C) Lightly grease a 9×13″ pan with deep sides.
In a large mixing bowl combine the ingredients until they look well distributed.
Press the mixture in the pan, Bake for 20-25minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool completely, cut and serve!
My son and I have been enjoying a granola bar with breakfast each morning and I plan to make more! They are so yummy, and I love that they were so inexpensive, too!
