Granola Bars Recipe – The Ultimate Guide

Why buy a granola bar you crave from a store when you can make one at home?! Yes, make your favourite nutty, chewy, and delicious granola bar easily at the comfort of your home in no time!! 

Ever since I was a kid, I gobbled on the granola bars that were available in the market. I loved their chewy texture and how many nuts they were loaded with. 

But as I grew up and became a baker, I thought, why should I purchase these products from the market when I can make them myself at home, Especially a dessert like a granola bar which can be made with ingredients readily available at home? 

There are numerous versions of a granola bar with different nuts and binding agents. For example, you may find peanut butter in some bars, honey, just butter, or a combination of the two. It all depends on the flavor you want. 

Today, I will provide you with a simple, easy, quick, and incredibly delicious recipe. So let’s check it out!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Easy and Simple Recipe: The recipe is such that even a non-baker can make it. All you have to do is mix the ingredients, bake for 10 minutes, and then freeze. That’s it. Once it’s set, you can slice them up and enjoy eating! 
  • Flavoursome: The flavor of the bars is amazing. It contains ingredients like desiccated coconut, almond flour, sesame seeds, variety of but and dried fruits. There’s no one who wouldn’t eat this bar. 
  • It’s Versatile: A recipe that can be tweaked as per your preferences. You can always switch, add more or omit any nuts and dried fruits as per your liking and preference. So customize it the way you want. That’s what I love in a recipe. 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Butter: Butter is one of the binding ingredients in the recipe. Besides that, it also provides a nice buttery flavor to the bar. 
  • Honey: Since it’s a granola bar, refined sugar is not used in the recipe as it’s meant to be healthy. So to provide appropriate sweetness, honey is used. Also, honey acts as the primary binding agent. 
  • Rolled oats: Oats provide a great texture to granola bars. They provide a nice chewy texture as opposed to the crunchiness of the nuts. 
  • Sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, chis seeds: keeping in mind how healthy and nutritious granola bars can be, I have added a few healthy seeds as well, along with the nuts. These seeds add an amazing flavor to the bar. 
  • Desiccated coconut, Almond Flour: both of these ingredients have their unique flavor and texture, which is also a plus point in this recipe. Not many recipes available online will use these ingredients. 

How To Make Granola Bars

Preparation: There are many different ingredients used in the recipe. It’s better to gather them up first before starting to make the recipe. Also, prepare a 6-inch square ring by cling-wrapping it twice from the bottom. Preheat the oven to 170C(OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan).

Honey and Butter: Start by mixing honey and soft butter in a mixing bowl. Make sure the butter and honey have combined. 

Add all remaining ingredients: Once the honey-butter mixture is ready, start adding all the nuts, seeds, dried fruits, chocolate chunks, shredded coconut, almond flour, etc., that are needed in the recipe. Mix them all up and ensure that every ingredient gets coated well with the butter and honey mixture.

Bake: Transfer the batter to the prepared ring. Spread it evenly using a spatula. Bake it in a preheated oven at 170C(OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan) for 10-15 minutes. 

Freeze: After baking and cooling down, keep the bar in the freezer for at least an hour. 

Garnish and serve: Once the bar has set, demould it and cut it into six even portions. Garnish the bars with some melted chocolate and serve. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe


You can experiment with the flavor if you’d like. Try using peanut butter instead of salted butter ( or you can take 50-50 of each). The peanut butter will provide a different flavor to it. 

Do Not Overbake

Avoid overbaking as that would make the granola hard and can even taste burnt in some places. 

How To Store Granola Bars

Once the bars are ready, keep them in an airtight box in the refrigerator. They can stay good for a week. If you want, you can also freeze them for two months.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
