Chewy Granola Bars


Granola bars are the ultimate energy-boosting snack, and these are so simple to make because they don't even need any baking! 

These are great for traveling, because they're portable, are protein and fibre-full (AKA the stuff that makes and keeps us feeling full), and can easily pass airport security. So bring them on your next adventure for a delicious home made treat. 


This recipe uses very little honey as sweetener, and allows for any filling you can dream of. I used sunflower seeds, raisins and chia seeds for some crunch, added chewy-ness and boosted nutrients (you can read about chia-seeds here
