Granola bars can be convenient, especially if you are breastfeeding like me. However, so many bars have horrible ingredients in them. It is cheaper and healthier to make your own. I noticed that a lot of homemade snack bar recipes contain nuts or seeds. Those are both super common allergens and I wanted to be able to make something that those on a nut and seed free diet could consume. Not only that, but seeds and nuts can get expensive if you are constantly baking with them. Nuts and Seeds are also both high in PUFAS (polyunsaturated fatty acids) which can become problematic if you have high levels of those in your diet.

Do I have to use Yogurt?

The recipe works without yogurt, but the yogurt does add a nice source of protein.

Can I use berries instead of chocolate chips?

I have used blueberries before and they worked out well.

Can I add Nut Butter?

You can try and add nut butter if you would like, I have not personally done it. I would recommend taking out the yogurt and using nut butter instead if you decide to do that.

What kind of Oats should I use?

I recommend the brand One Degree Organic Foods (Sprouted Oats)

You can use Bobs Red Mill Organic Oats, but each type of oat tends to bake differently, quick cooking oats bake faster than traditional rolled oats. If you are using regular rolled oats, I recommend baking for longer.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Instructions

    This is a super easy recipe, preheat the oven to 375 and combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. 

     

    Once everything is mixed together, coat a 8x8 glass baking dish with coconut oil or ghee. 

    Evenly pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 22-25 minutes. 

    Try and use Organic rolled oats. Quick cooking oats are going to cook a little differently so if you end up using those, bake the bars for less time.
