Homemade Thick, Chewy Granola Bars

It took me long enough to post about these! I made these quite some time ago and really enjoyed them! I love how versatile the recipe is, as you can sub whatever nuts and dried fruits you have on hand or are your favorites. Next time, I am adding dark chocolate chips! This time I used dried cranberries, raisins, dried bananas, almonds, pecans, shredded coconut and a tropical nut a fruit mix from the bulk section of HEB. I love the texture that the ground and whole oats gave and really loved the peanut butter flavor. I did not use corn syrup, but used agave nectar and honey instead. These were great, as a little square or two was satisfying and a great pick me up in the morning or the middle of the day. Perfect crumbled over some tangy Greek yogurt.
