The nice thing about healthy granola bars is that you can eat it at any time of the day or make it your breakfast. Enjoy it as is or crumble it up, add some oat or almond milk and turn it into a healthy granola breakfast.
I found some great instructions on how to make oat milk if you are interested in doing that. That would make a really yummy snack!
Granola bars really make the ideal snack. They are full of protein and provide just the pick me up needed during the day.
The sweetness isn't overpowering but can still tame any sweet tooth! Enjoy this vegan snack and avoid feeling guilty about eating packaged snacks.
Always looking to come up with quick and easy snacks, Anthony and I are huge fans of granola recipes.
- Toss in some vegan chocolate chips!
- Add in pumpkin seeds.
- Unsweetened coconut flakes would be great in this.
- You can add in some dried fruit, cranberries, or raisins as well.
