Description

These Easy No Bake Granola Bars are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast or snack option! Made with oats, flax meal, honey, peanut butter and chia seeds. 


Scale

Ingredients

2 cups old fashioned oats

1 tbsp flax meal

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1 tsp coconut oil

1/4 cup banana chips (optional)***

2 tbsp walnuts, finely chopped (optional)


Instructions

Add the oats and flax meal to the bowl of your food processor, process on high until oats are a fine consistency

Add the honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract, process on high for a 2-3 minutes

Add the chai seeds, pulse to incorporate

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper*

Press the granola bar batter into the pan**, make sure to press it firmly into the pan and smooth out the top so it’s flat

Put the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a heat safe bowl and melt over a double boiler (or on defrost in the microwave)

Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the granola bar batter, use a spoon to spread it evenly

Top with banana chips and chopped walnuts (or toppings of choice)

Put the loaf pan in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to harden

Remove the pan from the refrigerator and use the parchment paper to easily pull the bars out

Set on a cutting board and slice into bars about 1-inch wide

Store in the refrigerator


Notes

*Use a large piece of parchment paper so you can use it to easily pull the bars out of the pan after they harden

**the granola bar batter will still be a little flakey, that is ok, press it firmly into the loaf pan and it will stick together.
