Cherry Vanilla Almond Granola Bars🍒

  If you don’t know already, bars are one of my favorite snacks. If we went to the grocery store and looked at the granola/protein bar section, chances are I have probably tried 90% of them. 

In my free time, I thought it would be fun to make my own to have for a yummy snack and maybe if I’m nice I’ll share with my family….

This is a great recipe for the ones with a peanut allergy because it just contains almonds.


🔸2 cups oats

🔸1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Lean Body For Her Whey)

🔸1/4 cup Kolat Cherry Vanilla Almond Butter (or almond butter of choice)

🔸1/4 cup agave

🔸1 T flaxseeds

🔸1/2 cup cashew or almond milk

🔸1 tsp vanilla extract

🔸1 tsp cinnamon 

🔸1/3 cup dried cranberries 

🔸Sliced almonds for topping 

 Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. 

In another bowl, stir together the almond butter, agave, almond/cashew milk and vanilla. Add that mixture to the dry minutes and stir until fully combined. 

Pour into a well sprayed 8X8 inch pan and spread evenly through with a spoon or spatula. 

Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes before cutting. Makes 9 squares of granola goodness❤️

 Soft, chewy, nutty, and sweetness of the cranberries makes this a fun, portable, nutritious snack. You could easily add some chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, extra nuts, or whatever you crave😊
