There are weeks where I don’t really get the chance to go grocery shopping which means, I’m left to my own devices when it comes to snacks. So as a backup plan, I’ve developed a quick and simple granola bar recipe made from items I usually have in my pantry.

It was super easy to create. I literally just threw stuff in a bowl that I thought would work well together! I hope you can make use of this recipe when you find yourself in a snack shortage.

Nutty Nola Bars

-vegan, refined sugar free

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 cup of instant oats
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/8 cup of ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • Extras/ optional: cranberries, almonds – I would add no more than 1/4 cup of each.

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix it all using your hands until al of the ingredients are well combined. In an oiled tray spread the ingredients in the pan so that it is about 1/2 an inch thick. You want to be sure you really even out the edges as they can get quite crumbly.

Place the bars on the oven for 20-30 minutes to bake or until they are slightly golden brown (it may take less time).

Once they are done, take the bars out of the oven and spread melted coconut oil overtop using a brush.

Let the bars cool for an hour. Cut into the bars but cutting off the edges first (I like to use that part as granola) then cutting the rest into 12 even bars.

Store in an air tight container and place on the fridge to keep them fresh! Enjoy!

Yields: 10-12 granola bars

LOVE,

Jasmine
