These healthy breakfast bars provide a respectable level of protein and fiber without a ton of calories. Best of all, they can be eaten on the run. Reconfigure the "additions" to suit your fancy.... or replace the Splenda with another sweetener if you're trying to stay "au natural." This is a base recipe that can be tweaked to your taste!

Wildly Addictive Peanut Butter Granola
Very Good 4.3/5
(34 ratings)

A store near my daughter's house in California has peanut butter granola in the bulk food section. But I couldn't find it anywhere near my house in Illinois, so I found this recipe online and made my own. Now I'm glad I couldn't find it at the store. It's cheaper and I can control the ingredients that are used.

As far as sweeteners go, molasses is a pretty healthy one. This granola offers a good amount of calcium, fiber and flavor!

Anything Goes Granola

Coach Nicole's Molasses & Honey Breakfast Granola
Very Good 4.2/5
(6 ratings)

This was my first attempt at making my own granola, because let's face it--that stuff is expensive at the store! You can use any combination of your favorite nuts, seeds and dried fruit, but these are my favorites.

Cherry Almond Granola
(no ratings)

I discovered this recipe about 5 years ago in a magazine. This has become a family staple. My favorite power snack is 1/2 cup of this granola with 1 cup of non-fat vanilla yogurt.
I store this in an air-tight container, but it is gone within the week.
I've tweaked a couple of things, in that I prefer dried cranberries instead of dried cherries.
