No-Bake Granola Bars

no bake granola bars

These no-bake granola bars are quick to throw together and completely customizable. Try this version with almond butter, sliced almonds, and dried cranberries.

Yields: 9 square bars



Line an 8x8 pan with aluminum foil and set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together the oats, nuts, and cranberries. In another smaller bowl, stir together the almond butter, agave nectar, and salt until smooth and combined. Pour the mixture into the oats and stir until everything is completely coated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Using another sheet of foil, press the granola bars down firmly into the pan. Freeze the pan for at least two hours before lifting out the foil and cutting into bars. Cut into nine squares using a sharp knife. Wrap the bars individually and store in the refrigerator.
