Granola bars

My daughters both love granola bars and its hard to find vegan granola bars at the store, I decided to try and make them...These turned out pretty good, except that I wish I added a bit more maple syrup and almond butter.

2 cups old fashion oats
1 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped almonds

1 1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil-melted
1 tbsp vanilla 

Preheat oven to 350
Add wet to dry, stir until well combined.
Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper
press mixture firmly down. 
Bake for 25 minutes.
Cut while still warm. 
Let cool


  1. Perfect to stick in my bag when on the road! Like all the healthy ingredients. Will add some almond butter. Thanks!

  2. Need to give this a try for our road trip to Ohio here in a couple of weeks!

  3. mmm I might have to make these. I love granola bars and I bet homemade ones taste 100 times better!

  4. After we ate a couple everyone agreed they needed more maple syrup, I would add another 1/4 a cup. Hope they turn out good for you :)
