Move over chewy bars because these simple homemade granola bars are no-bake and taste divine!
It’s So Simple
It’s mind bottling to me how I haven’t made these gluten free granola bars sooner. The effort is minimal and best of all, it’s cheaper than your typical gluten free granola bars and is sweetened only with honey
Here’s What You Need To Make These Healthy Granola Bars
- Gluten free oats
- Peanut Butter
- Sea salt
- Dairy free chocolate chips
You will be putting all the ingredients except for the peanut butter and honey into one large bowl and combining the ingredients.
The only effort involved in this recipe is mixing the honey and peanut butter together in a small pot over low-medium heat.
After that, you’ll let the pot of honey and peanut butter cool for 5-8 minutes. You don’t want to melt the chocolate in the chocolate chips so the cool time is essential.
Once everything is combined, simply press the mixture into an 8×8 pan spread evenly using your hands or the back of a glass.
I find using a glass makes evening the mixture much easier than a spatula or your hands.
After pressing the mixture into the pan sprinkle a little extra sea salt and chocolate chips over the top and put in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.
After that time, take it out of the freezer and let it sit for 5 minutes before cutting evenly into 10 bars.
