This blog is documenting a lot of firsts for me, and now, my first time making granola bars.  It has helped a lot that I recently received a nice food processor as a gift.  The bars I made combine ideas from a friend’s recipe, and from Minimalist Baker’s 5 ingredient granola bars (http://minimalistbaker.com/healthy-5-ingredient-granola-bars/).  Now I have a couple boxes of store-bought granola bars that will just have to wait!

Ingredients:

1 cup dates, packed

1/4 cup natural peanut butter (creamy, salted)

1/4 cup honey

1 cup walnuts, chopped

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1.5 cups oats

Process dates in food processor, then add the remaining ingredients and process until mixed well.  Put granola bar mixture into a baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for a few hours.  Slice into bars and store in an airtight container in freezer or fridge.
