5-Minute Granola Bars


  • 2 cups gluten free quick oats (you can also use rolled oats after processing them in a  food processor)
  • 1¼ cup peanut butter (use sunflower butter for a nut free option)
  • ½ cup pepitas or sunflower seeds
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup or honey
  • ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt (optional)


Step 1:

In a food processor, combine the oats, peanut butter, pepitas, salt and maple syrup. Then add in the chips and pulse a few times to get them evenly mixed in.

Step 2:

Line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper. Leave enough paper to come out the sides.

Step 3:

Press the mixture down well into the 8 x 8 pan. You really want to pack it so the bars hold together.

Step 4:

Place the pan in the fridge to set. Should take 30 minutes.

Step 5:

Once set, pull the whole thing out of the pan by the extra ends of parchment paper. Use a pizza cutter to cut them into bars or squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
