Honestly, the World’s Awesomest Homemade Granola Bars

I don’t normally do recipes but this recipe is too good not to share with you girls! My friend shared this awesome recipe for homemade granola bars on her blog.I made them  for my girls. Now, I happen to be obsessed with making and feeding to my girls, and grabbing a nibble myself too! There is something reassuring and organic about  making food with love for your children and knowing what’s in it, no preservatives!So, I tried this recipe once  a few several times , its a big hit in our house. In fact, I just made a big batch for this weekend! My girls are so excited, we have a blast making it together and then we enjoy it as a snack with a huge glass of organic milk(Can’t do the hormones for my girls..but that is an entirely different post!) It’s also super awesome as a topping on French Vanilla yogurt! You know me, if its good for my readers and our kids, I’ve got to share. Below is the recipe! Enjoy!

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cut shredded coconut
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or raisins or other dried fruit of your choice!

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.

 Line 9×13 pan with foil and spread mixture.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, let cool a bit and then cut into squares.

Wrap in cling wrap and eat with in about a week. They are still good after a week, but dry out a bit and become  crumbly.

  This recipe and pictures are from my friend Jenica over at Magnolia and Boothe! She has some amazing recipes and great green ideas, if anyone is interested.Stop by and tell her hi!
