A recipe for a no-bake homemade nutritious granola bar that's chewy and delicious.
Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients (aside from chocolate chips) and mix to combine. Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt coconut oil. Add in honey and nut butter and mix to combine. Microwave for 30 more seconds and mix.
Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Add in chocolate chips and again mix.
Spoon granola mixture into prepared pan and push down as firmly as you can. Use a piece of wax paper to push down if necessary.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set and then pull out and slice. Store in fridge for up to a week.
My favorite combination for this recipe is 1 cup pecan pieces, 1/2 cup sliced almonds, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds with dried cherries and chocolate chips. But feel free to vary your nuts and seeds, and even your dried fruit!
