Homemade granola bars are a great alternative to store-bought granola bars because you can control the amount of sugar they contain and ingredients that you use.


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut or almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Spread the oats and coconut evenly across a baking sheet.
  3. Toast oats and coconut in the preheated oven until browned, about 10 minutes; transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Mix honey, peanut or almond butter, vanilla extract, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until smooth. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and coconut; stir to coat. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until beginning to dry, about 15 minutes for crunchy granola bars, less if you like them chewy.
  6. Make sure the mixture is cooled completely before cutting. Cut into length-wise bars.
  7. Wrap into wax paper and store in an air-tight container.
