Ingredients:


1 cup creamy almond or peanut butter

2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free)

1 cup brown rice syrup


Optional add ins:


¼ cup of : vegan chocolate chips (a personal favorite), chopped nuts or seeds, (peanuts, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, ect..) or chopped dried fruit


Step by step:

  1. In large bowl, combine nut butter, oats, rice syrup, and any optional add-ins

  2. Stir together until well combined (this can be tricky to do by hand as the brown rice syrup is very thick, so feel free to use a stand mixer)

  3. Add the mixture into a 8x10 baking pan

  4. Using a spatula, push down the mixture until it is smooth and even

  5. Place in fridge for 2 hours before cutting

  6. Once chilled, cut your bars into small, medium, or large rectangles (whatever works best for you!)

  7. Store in fridge for harder granola bars or outside of the fridge for softer granola bars and keep in an airtight container for up to seven days!
