Granola Bars

These granola bars are a staple in our house now. Not only do they taste delicious with their gooey and crunchy texture, but the chia and sunflower seeds make them wicked good for you. I use my homemade peanut butter, hot out of the food processor, to make these. But you can use any of your favorite natural peanut butter (or cashew or almond butter) from the store. If you get a chance to make it homemade though - definitely try it in this recipe!

2 1/2 cups rolled outs (I use Trader Joe's GF Rolled Oats)
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup raw agave nectar (or more to make extra gooey)
1/2 cup natural (or homemade) peanut butter

Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then add in the peanut butter and agave. Mix with a spatula until fully incorporated, and then press the mixture into a 8x8 baking pan. Refrigerate for a few hours, cut into 8 bars, and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Here is to happy and healthy snacking.
