Healthy 5-Ingredient Granola Bars
Healthy, no bake granola bars with just 5 ingredients and a sweet, crunchy texture. Peanut butter and honey complement each other perfectly in this ideal portable breakfast or snack.
Serves: 10 bars
Ingredients:
1 cup packed dates, pitted (deglet nour or medjool)*
1/4 cup honey (or sub maple syrup or agave for vegan option)
1/4 cup creamy salted natural peanut butter or almond butter
1 cup roasted unsalted almonds, loosely chopped
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (gluten free for GF eaters)
optional additions: chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, banana chips, vanilla, etc.
Instructions:
Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain (about 1 minute). It should form a “dough” like consistency. (mine rolled into a ball)
Optional step: Toast your oats in a 350 degree oven for 15-ish minutes or until slightly golden brown. Otherwise, leave them raw - I just prefer the toasted flavor.
Place oats, almonds and dates in a bowl - set aside.
Warm honey and peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir and pour over oat mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates to disperse throughout.
Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to an 8x8 dish or other small pan lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper so they lift out easily. (A loaf pan might work, but will yield thicker bars.)
Press down until uniformly flattened. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap, and let set in fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes to harden.
Remove bars from pan and chop into 10 even bars. Store in an airtight container for up to a few days. I kept mine in the freezer to keep them extra fresh, but it isn’t necessary.
*Notes:
If your dates don’t feel sticky and moist, soak them in water for 10 minutes then drain before processing. This will ultimately help hold the bars together better.

There’s no better way to explore a new place than to go and get lost in it.. Smell, feel, listen and absorb as much as you can of that which is not familiar to you.. Keep your feet moving, mind open, be receptive and intuitive but also a little spontaneous and adventurous.. Try new things, smile at strangers, smile at yourself, stay active, eat well, introduce yourself to others, change your perspective, challenge yourself, do something insane, wake up early, dance more, be warm, be flexible, be caring, be giving, be able to learn from your mistakes and to forgive not only others but also yourself.  This world is incredible; it’s beautiful, mysterious and full of life. But so are YOU.  So travel. Travel all the time. Travel near and travel far. Travel by transport, travel by foot or travel by spirit. Seek adventure, welcome knowledge, crave experience. Wander the earth and also wander within yourself.. Travel doesn’t always have to be the physical act of international ventures.  Think about it..  #werunsf @nikewomen (at SFO)
