I was recently turned onto these bars by a friend and I am for­ever grate­ful. I have been look­ing some sort of gra­nola bar I could make at home that would be firm enough to hold up on it’s own, but not hard and didn’t require too much sweet­ener. These use a ton of of nuts and seeds, which we usu­ally have an abun­dance of, so this recipe is a cinch to throw together. These bars, using agave, win on all accounts. They are nutty, chewy, and crunchy and make a great high pro­tein snack that can eas­ily sub­due any candy/baked good crav­ing you might be hav­ing. I’ve been mak­ing dou­ble batches of this recipe and Jim and I gob­ble them up through­out the week.

Oat/nut/seed mix­ture after toast­ing. We aren’t coconut fans, so I left it out and used some sliv­ered almonds instead. I also add a lit­tle dust­ing of cinnamon.

  1. I’ve been mean­ing to try my hand at home­made bars. I always eat a bar before I hit the gym after work. And I spend a for­tune on Larabars, Luna Bars, Clif Bars, and such.

    Inter­est­ing recipe, dif­fer­ent from the one I usu­ally use (espe­cially with regards to baking/not bak­ing after mix­ing all the ingre­di­ents together). I’ve got to give it a try!
