Easy No-Bake Granola Bars Recipe :-These granola bars are mouthwatering and simple to prepare using items that are commonly found in a cupboard. It is not even necessary for you to bake them!
At the same time that they are an excellent snack, these granola bars can be considered a speedy breakfast option. In addition to the fact that I enjoy bringing these bars along on airplanes and road trips, I also enjoy hearing from mothers who prepare these granola bars on a regular basis for their children. Every age group enjoys them to a great extent.

Easy No-Bake Granola Bars Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • One and a half cups of either fast-cooking oats or traditional oats
  • a single teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 1.25 milligrams of fine sea salt (if you are using conventional table salt, reduce the amount somewhat).
  • mix-ins (such as almonds, seeds, chocolate, shredded coconut, or dried fruit) in the amount of two cups
  • 1 cup of almond butter or peanut butter that is more creamy
  • honey or maple syrup, one-half cup
  • 1 teaspoon of essence of vanilla bean

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Apply two strips of crisscrossed parchment paper to a square baker measuring 9 inches in diameter. Cut the strips so that they fit perfectly against the base and up the edges of the baker. It will be much simpler for you to slice the bars in the future if you use the parchment paper.
  • Put the oats in a big bowl that may be used for mixing. Mix the cinnamon and salt together after adding them to the mixture. Put aside for later.
  • At this point, we will take the mix-ins and give them a quick whirl in the blender or food processor (you may also chop them by hand). Begin by including any large nuts, such as almonds or pecans, and pulverize them for a few hundred seconds.

 

  • Next, add the remaining ingredients and continue to run the machine for a few more seconds. Continue doing this until all of the components are broken up into pieces that are smaller than your pinky nail. Add the mix-ins to the bowl of oats and stir to combine.
  • Using a liquid measuring cup with a capacity of two cups, measure out the nut butter. Put the vanilla extract and ½ cup of honey on top of the dish.
  • To ensure a smooth mixture, stir. If you absolutely have to, you can reheat the liquid combination on the stovetop or in the microwave, but before you pour it into the dry mixture, you should make sure that it is close to room temperature. This is especially crucial if you are using chocolate, as it will melt.

  • Assemble the dry components by pouring the liquid ingredients into them. To ensure that the two are thoroughly blended and that there are no dry oats left over, use a large spoon to mix them together.
  • You’ll need some arm muscles to accomplish this, but you can do it! In the event that the mixture was simple to combine, this is an indication that you need to incorporate additional oats; sprinkle in additional oats until you are unable to incorporate any more from the mixture.
  • After the square baker has been prepared, transfer the mixture to it. After you have used your spoon to place the mixture in the baker in a manner that is rather even, you should then use the bottom of a flat, round surface (such as the bottom of a small, robust drinking glass) to pack the mixture down as evenly and firmly as you possibly can.

 

  • A minimum of one hour, or ideally overnight, should be spent in the refrigerator with the baker covered. (In order to prevent the oats from becoming sticky, they require some time to absorb some of the moisture.)
  • At the point in time when you are prepared to cut the bars, remove them from the oven by collecting both pieces of parchment paper that are located in opposite corners. Prepare the bars by slicing them into four even columns and four even rows using a knife that is sharp.
  • Wrap each individual bar in plastic wrap or parchment paper; if you store them all together, they will adhere to one another to prevent them from falling apart.
  • For the finest flavor, bars can be stored for several days at room temperature, for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator, or for several months in a freezer-safe bag in the freezer. Any of these options is acceptable.

NOTES:

  1. Mix-in options include any combination of nuts (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, and so on), seeds (such as pepitas or sunflower seeds), chocolate chips or roughly chopped chocolate, shredded coconut, and/or dried cranberries or cherries.
  2. I used one cup of pecan halves, half a cup of pepitas, half a cup of shredded coconut, and half a cup of dark chocolate that was roughly chopped to make the bars that are displayed here.
  3. It is important to keep in mind that anything even slightly larger than your pinky nail will require you to break it up into tiny pieces. You can chop them by hand if you do not have access to a food processor.
  4. If you are using traditional oats and would like a texture that is less chewy and more smooth (as shown in my photographs), you can break up your oats by pulverizing them in a food processor for three to five seconds.
  5. This will give you the texture of granola bars. Following that, put them in the bowl.
  6. If you want to enhance the amount of fiber in these bars, you can change things up by sweetening them (mainly) with Medjool dates before eating them. Take twelve dates and soak them in water that is extremely hot for ten minutes.
  7. After that, cut them in half and remove the pits. Put the ingredients in a food processor along with two tablespoons of honey or maple syrup, and process them until they are perfectly smooth.
