4-Ingredient Almond Granola Bar

almondgranolabars_post2Granola bars are one of those fake healthy foods. People buy them from the store thinking they’re getting a healthy snack. Truth be told, most store-bought granola bars have as much sugar as a candy bar.

Making your own granola bars mean you get to control what goes in them and most importantly, no artificial sugar! These bars are a handy snack and are absolutely satisfying when you need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

The chocolate on top is completely optional but it does make your granola bar taste more like a candy bar!
