I created this recipe simply by raiding my pantry and using whatever “granola bar ingredients” I had. Not only does this mean you can cater it to your preferences, but that you can make these whenever you need too! If you want even sweeter bars, add some mini chocolate chips or peanut butter chips to the mixture.
No Bake Granola Bars (makes 9 3×3 in bars)
1 1/2 cups oat bran (you could also use quick oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons of vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Line a 9×9 in pan with parchment paper.
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl until everything is incorporated. Press batter into the lined pan.
Place in the fridge for 45 minutes, or until everything is set. Cut into bars and serve.
I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge.
