Recipe Notes

  • Oats are naturally Gluten-Free, however, cross contamination can occur when harvested, processed, and shipped. Please be mindful of your needs; look for brands that are certified Gluten-Free or produced under a Gluten-Free Purity Protocol. Certified Gluten-Free oats are tested for gluten while Gluten-Free Purity Protocol oats are tested for gluten and grown, processed, and shipped in a gluten-free environment.
  • Store your granola bars in the refrigerator or freezer. These bars will last about a week in your refrigerator and about 2 months in your freezer. If you freeze your granola bars, allow them to thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes before consuming. 
  • Make sure you use mini chocolate chips instead of normal sized ones. Normal sized chocolate chips are too big!
  • Customize! Granola bars can be customized with your favorite granola bar mix-ins! Try raisins, shredded coconut, chopped dry fruit, seeds, and nuts! Aim for a maximum of 1/4 cup total of granola bar mix-ins. Too much extra mix-ins will prevent the bars from firming up and setting properly.
