Learning to make granola bars is a worthy skill, because granola bars are so tasty and so handy! You can just keep a few in your handbag and munch on them when you are hungry.
However, whenever we buy commercial brands, we are always doubtful about the health quotient and quality of ingredients despite the promises on the wrapper.
So, why not spend a few minutes to make it yourself? This Healthy Oats Vegan Granola Bar with Peanut Butter is easy and quick, and requires no cooking at all. The charming chocolaty flavour, and the crunch of almonds and roasted flax seeds, make this a really yummy treat that none can resist.
The key to this recipe is the use of homemade peanut butter, which can be made quickly and easily. Loaded with protein, the homemade peanut butter is a real value-add.
Oats is rich in fibre , while flaxseeds are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids . Cocoa nibblets are full of antioxidants and magnesium , while coconut oil is a wonder food loaded with energy and healthy fats.
Coconut oil imparts the required softness to the bars. On the whole, this recipe is amazingly healthy, and especially great for athletes as it is rich in healthy fats and will give them loads of energy over an extended period of time.
Any one can much on one, for breakfast or as a midday snack.
