I was searching for a healthy granola bar recipe, one without butter and any added sugar. I came upon one called "grab-and-go breakfast bars", which I changed up to make this recipe. You can use any combination of nuts/fruits that you would like. I just used what sounded good to me, and it came out great! These granola bars have about 4g fiber and 4g protein in a serving, and make a great snack.

This is a fantastic recipe. Exactly what I was looking for. I like to switch the nuts and berries on every batch. My personal faverite combo is pistachios, cranberries and dried apricots. I also drizzle a little dark chocolate over the top of each individual bar to dress it up a little before i bag it and pass them out. (Dark chocolate ofcourse)Thanks!
