A recipe for a no-bake homemade nutritious granola bar that's chewy and delicious.

Course: Lunch, Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12
Calories: 264 kcal
  • 1 cup gluten free old fashioned oats (I use sprouted oats, but they are not necessary)
  • 1 cup nuts of choice
  • 1 cup seeds of choice
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life since they are dairy free)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp nut butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper.

  2. 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.

  3. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Add in chocolate chips and again mix.

  4. 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.

  5. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set and then pull out and slice. Store in fridge for up to a week.

Recipe Notes

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!
