Chewy Granola Bars

These Chewy Granola Bars are just like the classic Quaker bars, minus the added corn syrup, modified milk ingredients, canola oil, artificial flavours and…. massive amounts of sugar!!

These bars have just 6 ingredients and taste just as good (if not better). They make for the perfect snack for on the road or at school.

Enjoy,

1/2 cup ghee, butter or coconut oil
2 eggs, room temperature

3. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking powder.
4. Fold in wet mixture into dry ingredients until well combined.
5. Fold in chocolate chips until well combined. Careful not to over mix, we want the cookies to be soft and fluffy!
6. Roll into cookies and place on parchment paper. Cookies will spread to be sure to leave 1 1/2 between each cookie. Then top with pistachios and extra chocolate chips.
8. Bake for 13 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

Let cool for 10 minutes and indulge!
