Raw Vegan Granola Bars

10 Mar

I am posting about one of my favorite things twice because I like it that much…snacking. Healthy snacking to be more specific. These bars are the perfect thing to satisfy an afternoon sweet tooth or to fuel your day for an on-the-go breakfast. They are full of fiber, protein, heart healthy fats, and are naturally sweetened with dried fruit and honey. I made them using Trader Joe’s almond butter. I love all nut butters but this Trader Joe’s creamy almond butter tastes sinfully delicious. I highly recommend it 🙂

They got a stamp of approval from my hubby which is always a big deal!

*Edit: These granola bars are technically not vegan because they contain honey. I was recently informed the vegans who eat honey are called “Beegans”. Substitute the honey with maple syrup or agave nectar to make them truly vegan. Enjoy 🙂
