Homemade Granola Bars

Picking a healthy granola bar from store shelves can be hard. Instead of purchasing packaged granola bars, make your own from whole foods and ingredients you’re familiar with. You can make a healthy treat that appeals to your family's tastes. You can also substitute in your favorite dried fruits. Makes 18 bars in total.


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  4. Mix all of the other ingredients together into a large bowl, stirring to combine.
  5. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  6. Firmly press mixture into the prepared pan, using a rubber spatula or hands coated with cooking spray to create an even layer.
