I absolutely love granola bars. They are a quick snack, they taste so good, and they keep me feeling full for hours upon hours. However, some pre-made bars tend to be high in saturated fat and high in calories for such a small piece. I have learned, the more ingredients in a pre-made bar, the worse it is for you-typically.
Here is a quick and easy recipe to make your own almond butter granola bars using just 3 simple ingredients:
- 3/4 cup raw honey
- 1 cup raw almond butter
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- Heat the almond butter & honey in a saucepan on low heat until melted. Stir & remove from heat.
- Pour mixture over oats in a large bowl. Stir thoroughly.
- Pour & press batter into a 9 inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Remove & let cool.
Makes 16 bars.
