Chai Latte Almond Granola Bars

These are the BEST unbaked Granola Bars ever, seriously. I know I’m not supposed to brag about my own recipes but it’s more of an excitement that I can’t wait to share. These are super easy, like all my other bars, see  Almond Cherry Chocolate Chip Granola Bars  or Blueberry Oat bars with Coconut and Chocolate  but no baking involved. YES!!!
I am a hardcore snacker as you may have noticed. If there were a snacker of the year award, I would win hands down.  I usually eat 5 or 6 times a day. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner, and maybe another snack later (ehem)… healthy ones though!
I fall victim to hunger attacks, that strike so hard I always need to have a snack in my bag or I’ll end up buying anything it site and scoff it down unapologetically.
Hey, I’ll be the first to admit it.
I haven’t found any granola bars that I actually love, well I have but they’re loaded with sugar, so that’s not really an option.
So I made these. And I can confidently say they are THE BEST granola bars I have ever eaten and so simple. Again, no baking!

Method;

  1. Line a 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper..
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almonds, coconut flakes, Chai tea, and salt.
  3. In a smaller, microwave-safe bowl, combine the almond butter, honey, and vanilla extract. Heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until soft.
  4. Whisk the almond butter mixture well and add it to the oat mixture, stirring until fully incorporated.
  5. Put the mixture in to the baking pan. Using the base of a cup, press the mixture down firmly into an even layer. You want to pack it as tightly as possible.
  6. Cover and place it in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator.
  7. Remove from the pan by lifting the parchment paper and cut into 16 even squares.
  8. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or in the freezer.

 

Enjoy!
