7 homemade granola bars that are perfect for meal prep or lunch boxes! The perfect sweet treat to enjoy with your morning coffee.
Combine honey, coconut oil and nut butter (if using) in a medium pot. Bring to a simmer, and once pot starts bubbling up all over (see image at top of post), start the timer for 1.5 minutes (for chocolate chip & fruit & nut) or 1 minute (for all others).
When time is up, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla, salt, cocoa powder (for double chocolate), cinnamon (for snickerdoodle almond butter), espresso powder (for mocha). Let it cool down for 10-15 minutes.
While pot is cooling, prepare a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper (I secure mine with binder clips).
Stir in all remaining ingredients until evenly coated and press into the prepared pan. Spray a spatula with oil and press down into the pan. Press firmly (I go through and press 2-3 times, spraying spatula again as needed).
Cool in the fridge for 4 hours- overnight (overnight is best!), before slicing into bars.
Store in a sealed container in the fridge (they soften at room temperature) for up to a week or the freezer for up to 3 months.
