Quick and Easy Vegan Granola Bars

I consume a lot of granola bars. My weekly intake can get rather spendy, so I’ve been on a mission to find a superb granola recipe. The recipe from Food52 is good, but way too sweet for me. Not sure what I can do about that…I do love the texture and consistency though. I just wish there was a way to limit the sweetener and still have the bars keep their form. It’s definitely a great bar to try out as it was simple and didn’t require an insane amount of ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 c rolled or quick oats
  • 1 c raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/2 c raisins
  • 2/3 c peanut butter
  • 1/2 to 2/3 c agave
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

1.  Combine oats, seeds and raisins, set aside

2.  Combine agave and peanut butter in a small dish. Once creamy enough, add to oat mixture. Stir well. Press into a lined pan

3.  Cover with some foil, press again very well, then let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours (mine sat overnight)
