Oat & Almond Granola Bars

There's nothing that we don't love about these Oat & Almond Granola Bars. This recipe is so easy to make, it's plant-based and gluten-free. We used date syrup to give these bars a rich color and flavor, but maple syrups works as well. You can customize this Granola Bar recipe to use your favorite nuts and dried fruits. Make a batch or two and store in an air tight container for those times you need a quick breakfast or snack.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper with enough overhang on the sides to easily remove the bars from the pan. Set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan and press very firmly into an even layer.
  3. Bake 25 to 28 minutes or until top appears set and it’s golden brown around the edges.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack for at least 1 hour. Remove bars from the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into 12 bars.
