These granola bars are not only healthier than store bought granola bars, they also taste so much better!


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (quick cooking oats)
  • 7 dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots (about 12, chopped)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons raw organic honey
  • 2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350Fº.
  2. Put walnuts, almonds and rolled oats in a blender and briefly pulse until oats are broken up.
  3. Add dates and apricots and blend until texture is the same as nuts/oats mixture.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix well until the mixture clumps.
  5. Spread the mixture on a cookie tray (covered with parchment paper) and shape into a large rectangle or the shape you would like your breakfast bars to be.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes for chewy and tender, 20 minutes for crunchy.
  7. Take out of the oven and slice into bars. Let cool and serve.


These healthy granola bars will keep stored in an air tight container, in a cool place, for up to 5 days.
