These blueberry granola bars are just the ticket for giving me a little energy boost as I work, and they definitely help keep me from coming home completely ravenous and ready to eat all the junk food in sight!
If you’ve never made granola bars before, you are in for a special treat! Not only are these blueberry granola bars healthy and filling, they are also SUPER SIMPLE to make!
How to Make Granola Bars
Preheat & Prep – Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. I also like to line my baking pan with parchment paper to make it easier to get out after baking and for easier cleanup.
Dry Ingredients – Start by mixing together the oats, flour, coconut, brown sugar, blueberries, flax seeds, salt and almonds.
Wet Ingredients – Next, in a separate smaller bowl, you’ll mix the coconut oil, honey, coconut extract, and vanilla together until it’s fully blended.
Mix & Bake – Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and then toss until everything is fully coated. Then, press the mixture into a casserole dish lined with parchment paper and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until light golden brown. Let cool, then slice into bars! So easy, right?
