Homemade Granola Bars

Granola bars are a popular breakfast meal, but many store-brands contain an alarming amount of sugar and preservatives. Although homemade granola doesn’t have the same shelf-life as the commercial-made variety, it’s easy to whip up and pretty tasty—it probably won’t last long anyway! Here is a basic recipe for making your own granola bars; change it up based on your preferences and tastes:




  • A few cups of rolled oats
  • A cup of shredded coconut
  • 1 cup of honey or brown sugar
  • A handful of raisins
  • A handful of nuts
  • A handful of chocolate chips

Mix all the ingredients together a bowl and press into a well-greased 9x13” baking pan. Bake in the oven at 350 until lightly golden brown. Remove and allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
