Granola Bars


To put a little variety into my breakfast, I made this healthy homemade Granola Bar.  I did not use any sugar so I won’t feel guilty if I eat more. It is also excellent as a snack and energy bar.

I love Granola and Granola Bars.  I had a lot of them during my trip to London recently.  You can replace with other seeds or nuts at your own preference and availability.

This granola bar is combination of crunchy and soft texture.  It is slightly soft could be because of the rolled oats added I guess.

    1. Hi, thank you for asking. I never used chocolate chips in this recipe. I guess you can add in together with the rest of dried ingredients.

      Cheers :)

    1. Hi, Thank you for asking. I used extra virgin coconut oil. It is advisable to replace with honey or thick sugar syrup because the liquid sugar will help to bind all the ingredients together.

      Cheers :)
