Healthy Granola Bars (No Bake)

A healthy granola bar recipe with oats, peanut butter, honey and your favorite mix-ins.

Course Dessert, Snack


  • 1 cup almonds, walnuts or a mix for example
  • 1 cup oats, quick or instant
  • 1 cup granola
  • 1 cup dried fruit
  • 1/2 cup seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, hemp, sesame, chia or a mix)
  • 1/2 cup peanut (or any nut or seed) butter
  • 1/2 cup puffed rice
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  • Line a baking pan 8 x 8 or similar with parchment paper and leave about a 2-inch overhang on both sides.
    Melt peanut butter, honey and coconut oil in small saucepan on low heat, or in a double boiler or in the microwave with 20 second bursts.
  • Chop nuts roughly and place into a medium sized bowl.  Add all other ingredients and pour the melted peanut butter, honey and coconut oil over them. Stir until well combined.
    Transfer the mixture to your lined baking pan, spread it evenly with your hands, or the back of a spoon and press it down firmly and evenly.
  • Place the pan n your freezer (cover with plastic wrap) and leave it there for at least one hour until set.
    Remove the pan from the freezer and lift the mixture out of the pan using the parchment paper as a handle. Use a sharp knife to cut the mixture into squares or rectangles.
    Store the no-bake granola bars in the fridge or in the freezer (wrapped in freezer bags) for best results. If you want to take your bars with you (snack on the go) wrap them individually in plastic wrap, so that they hold their shape.
