Easy Low Sugar And Homemade Granola Bars Recipe

Easy Low Sugar And Homemade Granola Bars Recipe

After reading the label on store bought granola bars, I decided to make my own Low Sugar and Homemade Granola Bars It is surprising to many that there are a lot of granola bar recipes out these contain added sugar. There is so much for us to enjoy in a granola bar. I know of someone who says that granola bars are actually the healthiest candy bar ever made. That is an interesting observation if you were to ask me. I love that just about everything that I put into a granola bar has some kind of benefit to the body. Granola bars contain nuts, fruits, and other fine ingredients. However, many recipes for granola bars have added sugar. I am not sure why there needs to be a lot of sugar added to a granola bar to make it taste good. Granola bars are a perfect on-the-go kind of a treat. When I pack granola bars in a lunch box for school or work it is always intact and delicious for eating. Also, when we pack granola bars in a backpack for camping or hiking it never seems to melt on us. Hence, granola bars can stand up to different kinds of circumstances. The average granola bar has about four of the same kinds of ingredients. This could be why it seems to me that different bars always seem to resemble one another. However, most granola bars are known for their oats, nuts, fruits, and then something that binds them all together. However, it is the nuts, fruit, and binding ingredients which seem to vary among one another. We personalize granola bars with the ingredients that we put into them. This is true for the added sugar that we see added. We know that sugar is a good way to sell something, which could be why so many store bought bars have it added. However, I have found that I can make a good granola bar without the added sugar. The ingredients that I add to granola bars I Continue reading >>

This healthier oatmeal bars recipe is a favorite, because these delicious treats are easy to make and just 100 calories each! Now that its getting closer to spring, I wanted to reshare one of my and YOUR favorite recipes, Fresh Strawberry Oatmeal Bars! When I reshare old recipes, I typically update the post writing to include current information about what is going on in our lives. Although I did add a recipe video, because this particular post is so sentimental, I decided to leave it as it was. I hope you enjoy it, and I REALLY hope you enjoy the Strawberry Oatmeal Bars! OK, here it is. My original post. Cheers! Four years ago today, by a dazzling combination of good fortune, mutual sacrifice, and temporary insanity (on his part), I duped a cute guy into marrying me. Thus far, our lives together have involved a healthy dose of all three, though Ill take responsibility for more than 50% of the insanity.

Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars Recipe

Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars Recipe

Home Recipes Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars Recipe Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars Recipe Easy, no-bake treat or snack. On the healthy side too - packed with natural fiber and protein! Jan 9, 2018The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure Easy, healthy recipe with only 3 ingredients No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars! These bars areyummy and easy to make as a naturally sweet treat or snack, but still a pretty healthy recipe too.Packed withnaturalfiber and protein! Only three ingredients! I often use the natural peanut butter offered by Skippy, Jif, or Sams Club. They are still sweetened peanut butters, but there are some brands out there that have less or no sweetener. So results will vary depending on which kind you use. Almond butter can be a great option too, especially if there are allergies or other issues with peanut butter. I also recommend using almond butter if you want the bars to be a little less sweet. This healthy recipe is so simple that it is easy to experiment with different types of nut butter. If you try something different, be sure to come back and let us know what worked well for you! You can probably make these with quick oats instead of old fashioned, but the texture will be different. I really love the chewy texture of the old fashioned oats in there (plus the old fashioned oats are less processed than the quick oats). How easy is this?! You just melt together the peanut butter and honey, then mix it with oats and press into a 99 pan . Super easy and super tasty. The only down side is having towait for the bars to set which may take about 20 minutes or so. You could make a bunch in advance and store them in the fridge or freezer though! Give this recipe a try! It only takes a few minutes to put it all Continue reading >>

Personal Sized Baked Oatmeal With Individual Toppings: Gluten Free & Diabetic Friendly

Personal Sized Baked Oatmeal with Individual Toppings: Gluten Free & Diabetic Friendly Do you have picky family members? Do you make a meal and almost always one child is not as thrilled as the others because of one little ingredient you might have put into the recipe? Well that’s my family. If I make a large baked oatmeal in a 9 by 13 baking dish and add one type of fruit, like blueberries for instance, I have one child who will not eat it. If I make it with raisins which I love, none of my kids will eat it! And then there’s the hubby who wants nuts and the boys are allergic. So you see this recipe came out of a DEEP desire to please everyone in my family! So everyone will eat what I am putting in front of them for breakfast and I won’t have to make 3 different breakfasts (which I really hate to admit I have certainly done, shame on me I know! My original recipe began in a large baking dish as I mentioned, delicious for overnight guests, can be made ahead, wonderfully yummy! But freezing it was hard because I didn’t like the size of it in my freezer. I then used that same recipe to accommodate it in portion perfect muffin cups because I was often eating to much of this yummy breakfast. I guest posted that freezer friendly baked oatmeal and you can find it at Money Saving Mom. This is the third and final version I am super happy with because the toppings are what wins everyone over! I made 4 plain, 4 topped with walnuts and added some frozen blueberries in the batter for the hubby, 4 topped with chocolate chips for kiddies and 4 topped with raisins for me!! This recipe is completely free of added sugar and lower in calories as well! I think this finally fits our family to a tee so I think it will be perfect for you and yours as well! Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars {gluten Free}

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars {gluten Free}

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars are chewy, gluten free bars that only take a few minutes to throw together and make a great breakfast or snack! Peanut butter oatmeal bars are super easy to make that even the kids can help. Everything is be mixed all in one-bowl and then transferred to a baking dish to bake. Check out how the recipe here (this version is with chocolate chips which I highly recommend)! Thanks to the Recipe Redux for today’s theme since October 22nd, is National Nut Day, we will all be sharing nut-filled recipes. When I don’t make healthy homemade snacks kids, I find I feed them more packaged foods, which I don’t like. None of this really takes much time and is so simple my 8 year old can make them herself. Eating healthy in general can take a little planning, but I try to aim for one homemade snack recipe a week- energy bites, bars, breakfast cookies, muffins, etc. Try to set a simple goal for yourself and see what happens. I used the staples in our house, tossed everything in a bowl and out came these bars. Aren’t one bowl recipes the best? Eight wholesome ingredients in this bar recipe. No preservatives or junk like the packaged ones. However, I am updating this to add my kids now “need” these bars with chocolate chips so that is the way I have been making them lately. Once you do the chocolate chips it’s hard to go back! Nuts are a super food that fit into a healthy lifestyle because they are packed with heart healthy fats, tons of nutrients, fiber and more. Because they have protein, fat and fiber, they are very satisfying so make sure to fit them into your daily meal plan (just watch the servings as they are calorie-dense). So cheers to the nut! Hope you enjoy these super simple bars. And if you don’t do nuts, try these Pumpkin Chocolate C Continue reading >>
