I have many, many recipes bookmarked, so I gave them all a once over to determine which recipe to start with. I settled on a Peanut Butter and Honey Granola Bar recipe from Active Life Cooking. Mostly because I love peanut butter and had most of the ingredients in my pantry.
They were super simple to make and while hard to photograph turned out pretty darn yummy. If you take a look at the recipe it calls for your favorite “chaser” and “additives.” I chose flax seed as my chaser, sunflower seeds, almonds and dried cranberries as my additives and also included some rice protein powder (I try to stay away from all soy products and vegan rice protein powder was suggested by my niece as a good alternative – it is great in smoothies too).The only one thing I may change next time is to toast the oatmeal a bit more before mixing all the ingredients together so that my granola bars might be a bit crunchier.
I think I will keep trying granola bar recipes so I can compare and determine which is my favorite. Anyone have any good recipes to share?
