We are doing a Sugar Detox for the month of February!
Breakfast foods are one of the biggest sources of added sugars! We think that getting some cereals, yogurt, granola bars, protein drinks, etc. are all ‘supposed’ to be good breakfasts for on-the-go.
BUT, they are LOADED with added sugar, as well as other icky ingredients.
Aside from breakfast, we also love granola bars for just an afternoon snack, or even a late-night goodie. So here is an easy recipe that we make at home. Super easy, good ingredients, and kid-approved! We also like to precut the bars and put some in packaging to grab on our way out of the house.
Homemade Granola Bars Recipe
- 1 cup Peanut Butter (Make your own or check ingredients here)
- 1 cup Raw Honey (We like to use a honey that is solid at room temperature to help solidify the granola bars)
- 2 1/2 cups Oats
- 1/2 cup Ground Flax Seeds
- 1/4 cup Hemp Seeds
- Dash of Vanilla
Melt Honey and Peanut Butter in a saucepan. In a large mixing bowl combine Oats, Flax, Hemp, and Vanilla. Then combine liquid with oats and mix well. Add to a 9×13 pan for thin granola bars, or a 9×9 pan for thicker bars. Chill until set in the refrigerator or freezer. Then slice and enjoy 🙂
