How to Make Nut Free Granola Bars (No Baking)

  1. Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oats, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In small saucepan, combine honey and coconut oil. Cook over medium heat until bubbly. Turn the heat off and stir in the vanilla.
  4. Pour honey mixture into the oats and stir until well combined.
  5. Stir in pepitas and dried cranberries if adding. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, add in chocolate chips.
  6. Spoon mixture into your parchment lined pan and spread evenly. Spray a small amount of cooking spray onto your hands and press the mixture firmly into the pan so that it stays together.
  7. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the bars with the parchment paper and cut into 12 even bars. Enjoy!
