Sooooo sometimes you feel like a chewy yummy granola bar right?! Well I do!!

The fun thing about making your own granola bar is that the POSSIBILITIES are endless!!! AND the awesome thing is YOU KNOW EXACTLY what ingredients and how much is going into your bar!!

These were a mix up of:

2/3 cup chopped walnuts & 1/2 cup slivered almonds

1 1/2 cup – oats (not quick oats!)

1/2 cup– chocolate chips

1/3 cup – cranberries, dried

1/3 cup  – raisins, seedless

1 cup – peanut butter, all-natural

1/2 cup – honey

1/2 teaspoon – sea salt

I happen to be making these at the day care—if I was home with all my other ingredients I would get all CRAZY and add things like flax meal, hemp seeds, & chia seeds 👍. It would be yummy with cashews or whole almonds too.

Mix dry ingredients (except chocolate chips). Heat peanut butter up a bit so it mixes well and honey too if need to. If it’s to hot though it’ll melt the chocolate (as I discovered) SOOOO add the chocolate chips last if adding those in.

Press in lined 8×8 baking dish(with parchment paper or foil) can go in larger dish for thinner bars, to finish them –> refridgrate for a couple hrs.

Makes 12 bars (in 8×8 pan)

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
