Healthy granola bars are often hard to find, and quite often, the processed commercial granola bars that are readily available are laden with chemicals and other additives. These granola bars are made from simple, real ingredients that you’ll feel good about putting in your body. They’re also versatile and can be made with many different ingredients that you may have in your cabinets.
This version combines a banana, a healthy source of potassium, with loads of fiber and healthy fat when added to the oats and almond/flax seeds. The maple syrup, though sweet, packs a ton of cancer-fighting antioxidants.
Pack this granola bar in your snack pack for an action filled afternoon spent outdoors, or add it to your kids lunch box for school. Any way you choose to eat these delicious bars, you can be sure that you’re getting only the best ingredients.
