Commerical granola bars are not the only option. Learn how to make healthy and tasty granola bars at home, with wholesome ingredients.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “granola”? Is it something nutritious, natural and tasty? Many commercial granola bars you find in the store tend to be none of those things. Some even contain high fructose corn syrup and trans fat! Luckily, you can make your own bars in just minutes, and provide a natural product for anyone to enjoy!

Today in this No More Packaged Food series, we show you just how simple it is to make your own granola bars. First, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl (granola, oatmeal, dark chocolate chips, and ground walnuts). Then, add in the wet ingredients (honey and natural peanut butter) and mix them well. Pour this mixture into a pre-oiled baking pan, pat it down, and chill for 2 hours before cutting into bars. Then, wrap each bar individually so that they are ready for you anytime you need them. There you have it, easy, tasty and at a lower cost. Given the ease of making these bars from scratch, there is absolutely no excuse for buying the over-engineered stuff from the store.
