Sometimes a girl just needs the sweet, chewy, dense little treat that is the granola bar. Finding great granola bars that are good for you and fit into a special diet can be tough! I was hankering for some great granola bars so I adapted this recipe from one of the best granola bar recipes I have ever found: Playgroup Granola Bars. These bars are incredibly addictive! They are quite sweet, so they make a good dessert or occasional treat. You can always cut some of the sugar if you reduce the amount of coconut sugar and add some Stevia instead.
In times past I have attempted to lighten up this recipe by cutting back on the sugar and oil, but the texture just would never come out the same. The dense, chewy texture of these bars is what i love most about them, so I decided to leave the sugar and oil ratios alone, instead I subbed healthier versions: coconut sugar, honey, and coconut oil.
This recipe can easily be doubled, just watch the baking time to make sure they get cooked through but don’t get burned.
