Mix and Match Granola Bars

Jessica Braider
I have always been a big fan of granola bars. I like getting something a bit different with each bite. Also, I love the fact that they have good-for-you ingredients and are easy to eat on-the-go. This recipe is one of my favorites because I can switch up the mix-ins to suit my fancy or based on what’s in my pantry. They are delicious whether you are using dried fruit, nuts, seeds, or even chocolate chips.

Servings 12 servings


  • 2 cups rolled oats (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (if you don't have oat flour, just put some a heaping ¼of rolled oats into a mini-prep or food processor and grind until it is very fine, almost like flour)
  • 1/4 cup flax meal (or use more oat flour)
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, raisins, currants (or whatever other dried fruit you like)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, or grease it.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (oats, flour, brown sugar, oat flour, flax meal, cinnamon, salt, dried fruit, and nuts).
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients (syrup, beaten egg, oil, and vanilla). Mix well using your hands or a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture into the pan and pat it out evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the bars begin to turn golden at the edges. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then cut into bars while still warm (if you wait to cut until they are completely cool, it will be incredibly difficult to cut). Store in a sealed container for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
