Granola Bars

I've been contemplating making my own granola bars for quite some time, and seeing these on Smitten Kitchen was just the push I needed to finally give them a try.

These are chewy, delicious, and so easy to make.

The recipe is here. Changes I made are as follows: I used pecans; for the dried fruit, I used half figs and half goji berries; I substituted agave for the honey; I substituted oat bran for wheat germ. I also added the butter that Deb left out.

They are fantastic, and so easy to adapt to so many different flavors. I'll definitely keep this recipe in the files.


  1. These looks delicious as well as healthy! What a great way to incorporate goji berries. :>

  2. I have always wanted to make granola bars too. I'll have to try them soon- we are going on vacation in a couple weeks and they would be perfect to pack as snacks!

  3. Your granola bars look amazing! I love all of the add-ins and your substitutions sound so good.

  4. There really is nothing that comes close to homemade granola bars... store bought are such a shame! These look amazing!!!!

  5. Hi, I haven't made granola bars in a long time...this seems like a really excellent recipe!
    Peace, Stephanie
    PS I have something at my blog for you...please come and pick it up!

  6. I remember when I saw them on SK, too. These look terrific, Sarah! I'm feeling inspired!

  7. I can't wait to try these, I just bought the Barefoot Contessa book they're in and flagged the recipe. I love that you can totally adapt them to your own tastes.

  8. Yours turned out great. I made these a couple weeks ago (my first homemade granola bars) and hubby and I loved them. Will have to post it on my blog soon, with my changes!
