Chewy Raspberry Apple Granola Bars
Yields: 10 granola bars
These wholesome snack bars are so easy to make and full of bright fruit flavors. They’re a great healthy option for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert!
  • 1 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup (120g) unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup (80mL) skim milk
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 ½ cups (250g) old-fashioned oats (measured like this and gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 cup (140g) frozen unsweetened raspberries, diced
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and lightly coat an 8”-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oil and applesauce until smooth. Mix in the milk, honey and cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Stir in the oats until evenly coated with the applesauce mixture. Gently fold in the raspberries.
  3. Press the oat mixture into the prepared pan, and bake at 350°F for 16-19 minutes. Cool completely to room temperature in the pan before slicing into 10 bars.
Notes: For a vegan version, substitute your favorite non-dairy milk and agave in place of the honey.

It’s important for the applesauce to be at room temperature to prevent the melted coconut oil from re-solidifying.

For best storage results, tightly wrap each individual bar in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
