Crunchy Granola Bar Recipes


I love to bake granola bars of all kinds.  They're a great healthy snack that you never feel guilty eating - and they're nice and tasty for any grandchildren or guests you may have to visit. Many people think about granola as a bland snack, but you can really spice it up with some simple changes to a recipe.  Adding cranberries, cinnamon, pecans or almonds can really make a granola bar a crunchy treat.

Unfortunately with my broken ankle I haven't been able to be in the kitchen baking, but I've been scouring the internet for crunchy and chewy granola bar recipes to make once I'm healed!  I thought I'd share them all with you!

1. No Corn Syrup Granola Bars 

These are a traditional oat-based granola bar, but without any artificial sweetener.  These are a delicious guiltless snack for anyone who enjoys granola bars.

2. Nature Valley Bars at Home

If you're looking to recplicate those delicious oatmeal bars from Nature Valley, try this recipe!  They taste exactly the same and have that delicious crunch.

3. Gluten Free Granola Bars

Gluten free eating is all the rage, and it seems as though this diet has been helpful to many people's health issues.  These crunchy granola bars have lots of almonds, applesauce and honey for some natural sweetness!

4. Crunchy Breakfast Bars

This is such a delicious and healthy recipe.  She added plenty of nuts, and even used nut flour, so they're extremely crunchy.  And they're gluten free!

5. Quinoa Granola

I know this isn't "technically" a granola bar, but I love this granola with quinoa.  I think it's the healthiest of the bunch - try it with shredded coconut!
