Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy granola bars? Maybe you already do. Well, I decided I wanted to make a healthier granola bar than what I can buy at the grocery store. Yes, I have a sweet tooth, but at least I know these don’t have all the chemicals to “preserve” them like the ones I can purchase. I started out with a medium bowl…I was just going to make some bars with the ingredients I have on hand at the moment.

I started with oatmeal, puffed wheat, pumpkin seeds, the container with the leftover peanuts and raisins (you know where you just eat the M & M’s and leave the rest of the trail mix), etc. Before I realized what is happening, I have to grab the big, eighteen-inch stainless steel bowl…so here is the recipe I came up.

  • 1 cup coconut shredded

  • 2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups regular oats
  • 3 cups puffed brown rice
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl including the melted coconut oil (except the butter, brown sugar, and honey).
  2. Blend the mixture. Place the butter, brown sugar and honey in a medium pan and bring to a boil. Stir constantly. Boil for about 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Next, immediately pour the mixture over the ingredients and stir until completely moistened. Place the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet and cool in the refrigerator for about 30-40 minutes. Cut and wrap in desired bar sizes. These can be frozen as well.

These healthy granola bars you can grab from the freezer and take with you to snack on at work or eat them at home for a quick snack.

    If I have a chance to do so, I’d like to try your recipe and if I do I will let you know what I made. The fact that these are not baked means less time and energy to produce, but even more so, they can be made in the field. As long as one has a pot and some heat…. Badda Bing Badda Boom…. we have a snack.

    Obviously one can use what they like which is the second advantage as many of us have allergies or special diets. Sometimes store bought granola bars can be too crunchy (Especially if you have a broken tooth or sore jaws) and either too bland or maybe lack a nice texture. The sweet stuff like chocolate, fruits and marshmallows can be controlled as well….. or piled on 🙂

    In a nutshell, easy to make with little equipment and versatile.
