These granola bars are so tasty and easy to make! They are inspired by a recipe from Sally of Real Mom Nutrition, but I have omitted flour and honey, and made a couple small edits to rebalance the recipe after my changes. They are still so very yummy, and my kids love them for breakfast, snacks or to take with them to school. They are nut-free which means they’re a great option if your child is in a nut-free classroom! Enjoy!
- 2 cups old-fashioned gluten-free oats
- ½ cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon real salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line an 8×8 baking dish or pan with parchment paper.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Light beat eggs and then combine all wet ingredients in a small bowl.
- Then, combine dry and wet ingredients in the medium bowl and stir until fully combined.
- Pour batter into parchment-lined baking dish or pan and bake for 25-27 minutes.
- Gently lift bars out of dish/pan and move to a cooling rack. After cooling, slice into squares. It is great if you refrigerate them over night and cut into squares in the morning!
