Nutritionists and trainers are often asked, “Which energy or granola bar is the healthiest?” The answers come in as many varieties as there are bars on the market. Truth be told, the healthiest choice is the one you make from scratch in your own kitchen. Any bar on the market is processed and packaged and will undoubtedly contain some preservatives or other ingredients that are best not consumed. Try this recipe, or experiment with your own favorite ingredients to come up with your perfect bar.
- 2/3 cup almond butter or peanut butter
- 2/3 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup honey
- 2 cup oats
- 2 cups total of your choice of add-ins (such as chopped nuts, dried fruit, dark chocolate bits, coconut flakes, seeds)
Melt first three ingredients together, remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Press into a 9×13 pan and refrigerate until set. Cut into bars and enjoy.
