Tips for Making These Granola Bars
When making this recipe, a few simple tips are necessary to ensure they form well.
- Melt the coconut oil and then measure it out to make sure that the proper amount is used.
- Mix the almond butter and honey together and melt completely over low heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
- Incorporate all of the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients completely. And press firmly into baking dish to ensure proper shape/form of granola bars.
- Allow to cool completely before cutting.
Note: coconut oil has a melting point of 76 degrees F.
So, keeping these homemade granola bars in storage above this temperature will result in better granola bars that don’t fall apart.
How to Make This Recipe
Making homemade granola bars is a cinch! Literally melt the almond butter, honey, and coconut oil. Stir it together with the dry ingredients until well combined.
Press firmly into a baking dish. I use a 9×13” baking dish.
Allow to cool – completely before slicing! That’s super important. Placing the baking dish into the refrigerator is helpful for faster cool down time.
Slice up into desired bar size. Serve & enjoy.
To store these granola bars, simply place in storage bowl with a lid. Or keep in the fridge for longer term.
Since they are homemade and don’t have any preservatives, they won’t last as long as store bought granola bars.
