No-Bake Almond Granola Bars-these easy granola bars are made with almond butter and almonds! They are a great lunch box or on the go snack!
I have two growing boys in the house and they are always saying, “Mommy, I’m hungry!” I am a little nervous what they are going to eat when they are teenagers. Yikes. I do hope that they still call me mommy when they are teenagers. Wishful thinking? Probably:)
I like to keep homemade granola bars on hand so I can feed them to my hungry little hippos when they are starrrrrrrving. They are currently loving these No-Bake Almond Granola Bars.
I love making homemade granola bars because they are easy and much better than store bought. I also love this recipe because they are no-bake granola bars, I told you they are easy! They whip up in no time.
You can keep the granola bars in the fridge for up to one week. They are a great on the go breakfast, lunch box treat, or anytime snack. I love pulling them out of the fridge when our boys are about ready to pass out because they are so hungry:)
And if you want to go all out, you can drizzle a little chocolate over the top and eat them for dessert. These No-Bake Almond Granola Bars are good anytime of the day! Enjoy!
