Almond Butter Granola Bars
I LOVE these granola bars. Even better? My toddler LOVES these granola bars. Plus, they are vegan and gluten-free! They are easy to make at the beginning of the week and then store in the fridge for a few days as an awesome, protein-and-omega-rich, magnesium-packed, unprocessed snack. They are super versatile and basically whatever you have in your fridge or pantry can be subbed in after you have your main base of oats and the wet ingredients.
Also, here’s a hack for you: when cutting these up, you inevitably have some crumbs and chunks fall off from the main bars. Boom! Bonus granola! I always save it in a bowl for the next morning and enjoy it with some unsweetened almond milk.
Two side notes: 1) I am getting a better camera soon, so I apologize for the low-quality images and 2) Don’t be afraid of the coconut oil in this recipe because of some of the fear-mongering news stories about the “evils” of coconut oil.
