Oatmeal Cookie Granola Bars

Oatmeal Cookie Granola Bars

We love homemade granola bars around here, and these oatmeal cookie granola bars are no exception! After all, how can you go wrong with “oatmeal cookie” in the name?? :)

Oatmeal cookies are some of my favorite cookies – especially soft and chewy ones. Because of that, when I saw these granola bars, I knew I had to try them. These granola bars really do taste like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but they are a little bit healthier. 😉

These granola bars are perfectly soft and chewy – just like a delicious oatmeal cookie. They stay fresh on the counter top for days, or in the freezer for months. I made some before Emma was born and they’ve been perfect as on-the-go snacks for me or the kids.

They are made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil and almond butter so they are wholesome and filling. And absolutely delicious. :) And it’s super easy to double the recipe and make a giant batch to freeze for later.

I used almond butter in these because Levi has a peanut allergy, but I’m guessing peanut butter or another nut butter would work just as well. If you wanted them to be a little healthier you could substitute raisins for the chocolate chips, but I haven’t tried that yet. The chocolate chip version is just too good!

I hope you try these granola bars. After all, who doesn’t like eating cookies for breakfast? :)
