Do you love Granola Bars/Energy Bar and often buy them in the store? If you do, then try out this recipe once. I doubt if you will ever go for the store bought one's again. This bar is very easy to make and tastes so good. Without any additives or preservatives, a good option for after school snack along with a glass of raw milk instead of store bought cookies or bars.

I saw this recipe in the Livingwell Magazine, but slightly modified it based on my taste. The original recipe calls for chopped nuts, dried fruits etc but after the bar is chilled and then cut, the addition of nuts makes it difficult to get bars with even size/shape. So I reduced the amount of dry fruits & nuts in the second photo and instead replaced with grated coconut & finely chopped nuts. This is a very versatile and forgiving recipe, so let loose your creativity and you can come up numerous combinations.

Even though this recipe has all nutritious ingredients, if you are on a diabetic diet or on a no sugar diet this will not work for you. Raw Sugar, Honey all these things even though they are natural contribute to sugar spikes, so it is better to stick on with Stevia or Xylitol to avoid sugar highs.
