Chewy Coconut Almond Berry Granola Bars

Chewy Coconut Almond Berry Granola BarsChewy Coconut Almond Berry Granola Bars – 24 Servings

This is an easy, high-fiber and dairy free granola bar recipe that can be adapted to fit your family’s taste buds. You can change the nuts, dried fruits, add peanut or almond butter, use sunflower or pumpkin seeds, substitute real maple syrup instead of honey, add cinnamon, nutmeg, a few mini chocolate chips, etc… Just keep the oats and coconut milk about the same. The texture is a bit softer and reminds me of a Clif Bar.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Quick Oats
  • 1 Cup Old Fashion Oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup mix of cranberries, blueberries, and cherries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 can (13.5 ounce) lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper, and lightly grease it or spray it with non-stick spray.
2. In large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together.

3. In a separate bowl (I just used my measuring cup, less mess!), mix the coconut milk, honey, and vanilla together. Pour into the oat mixture and stir until moistened.
4. Pat it down in your baking pan.

5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on the texture you prefer.
6. Let stand for 5 minutes and remove the parchment paper from the pan. Use a large knife to cut the bars into desired pieces. I think 24 bars makes the perfect size.

7. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for one week, or freeze them (cut up) for up to 6 months. If you freeze them, you can easily pop one in a lunchbox or in a bag for a midday snack!
