If you love sweet treats, granola bars might be one of your favorite snacks you enjoy throughout the day. But many store-bought bars are packed with added sugars and preservatives, and actually aren’t much better for you than eating dessert! With these fresh, homemade granola bars, you have full control of the ingredients in your sweet treat.
These bars have less sugar than many store-bought options, and are filled with whole ingredients like chopped nuts, and dried fruit! Meal prep these on the weekend or weeknight and enjoy fresh granola bars for the entire week. Heat up for a few seconds in the microwave before eating, to make the chocolate all melty again!
