Homemade Healthy Granola Bars

By The Petite Plantation - April 29, 2016

Delicious and healthy granola balls or bars!

If you have been following us on Instagram, you know we like to take off on an adventure when the husband is finished work and every, single, weekend! We love to be spontaneous and hope to instill adventure into our children, but we usually end up hungry! I've tried making granola bars before and was left with a crumbly mess all over the car and the kids would still be hungry! The crumbly mess is probably still in the car, ain't no body got time for that!

After about a week feeling sluggish, and completely unmotivated in the kitchen, I took my B100 and got to work! My first try at the recipe but that's all it needed!

These Homemade Healthy Granola Bars, they stick together! But they aren't too sticky, they are soft and chewy. There are lots of omegas, 7.5g of proteins, fiber and vitamins in these babies! Hell, they are chock FULL of healthy shit! {I'm thrilled how tasty these are and frankly, they are badass so they deserve a potty mouth!

And, if you purchase all your ingredients at Bulk Barn, you can make them without creating more household waste, which is something we all need to work on!

They are super duper easy to make! And I've added options for those who cannot have nuts, and a dairy substitute for the chocolate chips. You can switch up the seeds if you like, but keep the ratios all the same to get the consistency I was going for!

Easy and quick granola bars or balls!

Throw all this in a bowl:

2 cups of Quick Oats
1/2 cup Sunflower Seed Butter, Peanut Butter, Almond Butter or Soy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup of Hulled Hemp Seeds
1/4 cup of Ground Flax Seed
1/4 cup of Chia Seeds
1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips, Carob Chips or Raisins
1/4 cup of Honey + 2 drops of OnGuard

Mix it up! Place in a baking dish lined with parchment paper and compress it with the back of a spoon. Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes, then slice in to bars or squares. You could also roll into balls before chilling if you prefer. Lately, we have been squishing them into silicone muffin cups which make a handy reusable container! Wrap them individually. We keep ours in the freezer, not sure why.. Then eat them!

About OnGuard

OnGuard is a blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils put together by scientist to help support our bodies immune system! I love being able to get a little OnGuard safely into my children, especially since we travel and don't want to pick up any germy things!

Why even use essential oils?

I use essential oils everyday, several times a day, in all the areas of my life and tiny home. I can't imagine my life without them. I love using essential oils because they are natural, toxin free, chemical free and help to address the root of your health issues rather than just covering up the symptoms, like modern medicine does. And they work, so there's that!
I only use dōTERRA oils because they are pure, potent and effective. There's no nasty additives or preservatives like you would find in oils from the grocery store, craft store, or Amazon!
