No-Bake Superfood Granola Bars are homemade, healthy and high-fiber, and don’t come with all the preservatives you might find in store-bought granola bars. These granola bars are easily made vegan or gluten-free. To make vegan, simply swap the honey for brown rice syrup. To make gluten-free, just be sure to use certified gluten-free oats. Enjoy!!
Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins | Total Time: 40 mins
2 cups old fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free if needed)
2 cups brown rice crisp cereal
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup almond butter
3/4 cup honey or brown rice syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a few inches overhanging on opposing ends to make for easy removal.
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, cereal, cranberries, almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Mix.
- In a separate bowl, add the almond butter and honey. Microwave for 30-45 seconds, stirring halfway through, so that the honey and almond butter are runny. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Tear off another sheet of parchment paper and lay it over top the granola bars. Press VERY firmly using your hands or a spatula. The piece of parchment paper will help reduce sticking as you press. The harder you press, the more likely your granola bars will stay together instead of falling apart!
- Refrigerate 30 minutes, up to 2 hours. Remove and slice into 16 bars. Feel free to wrap each granola bar individually. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
