So, I don't know about you, but I really like a mid morning snack. I found this recipe for a healthy granola bar that was easy to make and, you can make it dairy and gluten free. This bar is not like a boxed store bought bar. It's not as sweet, so if you're expecting it to be really sweet you might be disappointed. To be honest, I wasn't sure at first, but as the week went on, I liked it more and more. If you prefer it on the sweeter side, choose the honey option as the ingredient - it might give you a bit more sweetness than the maple syrup. It's a really satisfying snack, good texture, a nice peanut butter flavor and great if you're looking for a healthy alternative to a boxed granola bar.
Let's get baking....
In a bowl, combine and mix well
3 c. oats (I use gluten free quick oats)
3/4 c. natural peanut butter
1/3 c. maple syrup or honey
1/2 mini chocolate chips (I used dairy free)
2 large eggs
Press into a parchment lined 9x9 baking dish. (make sure you have pressed this firmly into the pan)
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until the center is baked through.
Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
