4 Ingredient Easy No Bake Granola Bars Recipe

naturally sweetened no bake granola bars recipe 

I’m finally sharing my no bake granola bars recipe with you today that I’ve held onto the last couple weeks as I’ve tried to catch my breath. As the school year comes to a close, I’m feeling anxious for a lack of schedule. The morning rush, barely seeing my babes and feeling consumed with work.

This morning started with a text from Chris to break the news to me that one of the girls had played in my candle and there were oil stains all over our new marble. I took a deep breath and told him it was alright, we agreed we would embrace the imperfections.

I walked downstairs to assess the damage and my heart sunk. There were 20’ish stains. I panicked, I turned to my Facebook fans for help and contacted our marble fabricators. I’m testing a few things out now and will let you know what I find!

Anyways, it put me in a funk, but it also put life in perspective for me. I was worried about my marble when I have 3 little girls who are growing up all too quickly and I am focused on marble. A thing. A thing that will be here the same size, that doesn’t give or receive hugs, love and smiles. Why? The marble was intended to be a means for us to cook, mix and bake together. I look forward to getting back to the basics with my babes as summer begins. These no bake granola bars will be the first thing we mix up because it’s safe and easy for them to make and we all love them!

We made these a couple weeks ago and within a couple days they had all been devoured. I won’t tell you how many I ate. These no bake granola bars are incredible on their own, but who doesn’t love to play with food? You can add mix ins or create a granola bar toppings bar when entertaining!
