  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter or any nut butter
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or raisins or other dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips any variety
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal optional
  • 1/2 cup almonds chopped (or any other nut)
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Pour into a parchment-lined 8×8 square dish.
  • Using a spatula, press down evenly in pan, being sure to press into the corners. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Holding onto parchment paper, remove from pan and place onto a flat work surface. Cut into bars and serve! Store refrigerated in an airtight container.


  • The more finely you chop ingredients such as nuts, the more successful the bars will be and the less likely they'll be to fall apart.
  • Press the granola bar mixture firmly into the pan, either with your fingers, the back of a large spoon or even the bottom of a cup or glass.
  • Refrigerating the bars before cutting and diving in will help solidify them and keep them from falling apart.
