Homemade Granola Bar


I have been dying to make homemade granola bars ever since I read the ingredient label on some of the bars I was currently eating. After making granola, I figured how much harder could a granola bar be? After much deliberation, I settled on this recipe because it didn't have added sugar. They turned out a little bit more like an oatmeal bar than a granola bar, but they are still delicious! I might have to try a couple more recipes until I find the perfect one.

 Ingredients 
  • 1 Cup Whole Grain Oats
  • 1 Cup Shredded Coconut
  • 1 Large Ripe Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seed
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Mini Chocolate Morsels
 Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine oats, coconut, banana, flax seed and vanilla in a mixer and mix on low speed
  • Add almond milk one tablespoon at a time while the mixer is on
  • Fold in chocolate morsels
  • Spread mixture out on a greased baking sheet in an even square
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are slightly brown
 Makes 8 bars
