Trail Mix Granola Bars that you will love having on hand when hunger strikes!
I almost renamed these bars the “Everything but the kitchen sink bars” because that’s exactly what they are. No lie, I went into my refrigerator to figure out what type of nut butter I wanted to use (which I actually ended up using sunflower seed butter) and then headed straight to my pantry to figure out what add-ins I wanted.
That’s the best part about making homemade granola bars – you can add in anything that you want!
A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and you’ve got yourself your own unique creation. I’ve remade these exact same ones twice now because I love the combo I created here, but feel free to get totally creative.
Needless to say, they are very forgiving. You can’t really “mess” them up.
I love storing them in the freezer and then letting them sit out for a few minutes before digging in. They are delicious that way.
