I do not enjoy buying granola bars anymore. They have so much sugar and ingredients that I cant even pronounce. So, here's my homemade version. Warning, they may not be as pretty at store bought bars :)
1 1/2 C of oats
1/4 C peanut butter
3 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS jam or jelly of your choice (I used guava)
1/2 C mix in's (I used 1/4 dark chocolate chips and 1/4 C dried cranberries)
1/4 nuts (optional-I didnt use them here.)
First, combine oats and mix in's in a large bowl.
In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil with jam and peanut butter.
Let sit for 2 hours (or longer, depending on thickness). When the mixture is set, cut into bars and store in the fridge until you are ready to eat. I store mine in little sandwich baggies so I can throw one into my lunch bag in the morning.
