No bake. One pot. 5 minute prep or less! Perfect for a quick breakfast, pre/post workout snack or dessert. It's so good for you and it'll keep you feeling full with all the fiber from the oats and energized with the healthy fats + protein from the nuts.
Are granola bars really good for you?
Most people think granola bars are a healthy option for a convenient afternoon snack to hold them over until their next meal. Truth is... most granola bars have no nutrition and some have as much sugar as a candy bar!
What is the healthiest snack bar?
A lot of better-for-you bars on the market use healthier ingredients, but they're still pretty high in calories and added sugar. To ensure you're actually getting the best and highest quality ingredients, you can make them yourself! It's actually easier than you think and you can control how much sugar, and what kind, is in your bar.
Try this no-bake chewy cashew coconut granola bar recipe below! You can swap out the nuts for anything you have on hand and it's super versatile so have fun with it!
