Ingredients: 

(1 batch – about 12 bars)

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1 ½ cups Crunola® raw granola
  • To taste, any add-ins you desire!
 

Spring is upon us, which means we'll be spending much more time outdoors and on the go! To stay energized, we look for grab-and-go snacks we can take with us each morning. While we keep our pantries stashed with staple power foods - like Organic Crunola® raw granola - that are delicious on their own, we’re always looking for ways to switch up our snacks.

It turns out it’s easy to use these ingredients to make your very own energy bars! This no-baking-required recipe is based on our deliciously crunchy Crunola raw granola, but you can easily substitute for our Organic Caravan Mix or even our Organic Granola

Instructions: 

  1. Beginning with the honey, almond butter and oats, stir together in a large bowl until evenly mixed. For a little extra flavor, we suggest substituting some of the almond butter for one of our organic chocolate spreads – like the hazelnutty Noisella!
  2. Gradually, add in the ground flaxseed until it is evenly distributed into the mixture.
  3. Repeat the previous step, this time with Crunola® (or alternatively, Caravan Mix or Granola). If you’ve decided to include any add-ins—like chocolate chips, shredded coconut, extra nuts or dried fruit—be sure to evenly mix those in as well.
  4. At this point, the mixture should be sticking together well. If it’s falling apart, add a little more honey. If it seems too sticky, add some more oats or Crunola® and combine well.
  5. Spoon your concoction into a 9×11-inch baking dish. Refrigerate for at least an hour or until the mixture hardens into a solid bar.
  6. Voilà! Here you have your very own, customized granola bars. Cut and serve, or wrap individually and keep refrigerated for ready-to-go snacks.
