Blueberry-Cinnamon Granola Bars

Set the bar high with these no-bake, nut-free, protein-packed granola bars.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries

  • 1 1/4 cup quick oats

  • 1/2 cup pepitas

  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal

  • 2 tbsp flaxseed

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Cover blueberries with warm water in a small bowl for 5 min. Drain and pat dry with paper towel.

  • Heat a very large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oats and pepitas, stirring often, until lightly toasted, 4 to 5 min. Stir in crispy rice cereal and flaxseeds. Set aside.

  • Combine coconut oil with honey, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small saucepan and set over medium-high. Boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and drizzle over oat mixture. Add blueberries. Stir until well combined.
