Joanna Gaine's Granola Bars

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

These granola bars are a delicious snack to have with a cup of tea and they are a yummy , healthy treat to add to kids lunch boxes. It is an easy recipe, quick to make and a healthy grab and go snack to give you a boost of energy for those tired moments when you need a little extra energy. I have adjusted my recipe slightly ( hope Joanna doesn't mind :)

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup sliced almonds

  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 1 cup cranberries

  • 3/4 cup honey

  • 2 TBL spoon brown sugar

  • 3 TBL spoons salted butter

  • 1 TBL spoon vanilla essence

  • 1/4 mini chocolate chips (optional I've made with and without )


1) Spread the oats and almonds onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper . Bake at 340 for 8- 10 mins

2) Add coconut and bake for another 5 mins. Take out oven and add chia seeds. Allow to cool then add the cranberries.

3) Mix the honey, sugar, butter ,vanilla essence in a saucepan and heat on low for a few minutes. Allow to cool for 10 mins.

4) Pour honey mixture over the oat mixture and add the chocolate chips

5) Spread into a lined 9X 13 inch dish and put in fridge for 2 hours

6) Cut into snack sized bars

I hope you enjoy !
