Packed with nut and seeds no bake granola bars.

Snacking on nutritious-rich foods is important for brain heath and alertness.

These easy to make, no bake granola bars are a great snack to take to work, school, or while you run errands.

The base of these granola bars are rolled oats.

Oats are one of the healthiest grains and consuming oats and oatmeal has many health benefits.

They are a good source of carbs and fiber, which makes it great for a healthy digestion and also keeps us fuller longer.

Oats also contain more protein and fat than most grains!

Next up are flax and chia seeds.

Flax seeds are small oil seeds that contain omega-3 fats, fiber, and other plant compounds.

These little brown or golden seeds contain some protein and a lot of fiber.

Chia seeds are high in fiber, plant protein, magnesium and are loaded with antioxidants.

They are also considered a whole grain food and usually grown organically.

For sweetness and added texture, I like adding golden raisins, dates and real maple syrup.

Any dried fruit will work well.

The dried fruits and maple syrup also helps the mixture stick together.

Adding these ingredients is a necessary step to keep it simple and no-bake!

For a bit of fattiness and flavor, nut butter like almond or peanut butter as well as virgin coconut oil is added.

These wet ingredients also holds the granola bars together.

Virgin coconut oil is the only oil that will work as the coconut oil solidifies as the mixture cools.

Lastly, for added flavor, ground cinnamon is a recommended addition.

It’s a common warm spice and most of us have it in our pantry!

Though these granola bars are more of a snack, I would also consider it a healthy dessert option.
