A great holiday snack, and something excellent to have around for the company of the season. Homemade granola bars are so simple and inexpensive, and controlling the sweetener makes them healthier than purchasing the store-bought version.
Use a mix of pistachios and cranberries for a sweet, salty, and indulgent taste. I love using Wonderful Pistachios because they come shelled, so give them a rough chop and then toss them into the batter. Those pistachios are rich in those better-for-you mono- and polyunsaturated fats.
These take seconds to whip together. And are sooooooo good.
I created these for Wonderful Pistachios, and I think you’ll love them!
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 cup raw honey or turbinado (raw cane sugar)
1 1/2 cup quick oats
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup roughly chopped, shelled Wonderful Pistachios
Prep Time: 5 minutes
1. In a medium bowl, beat egg and vanilla yogurt with a whisk. Whisk in honey or raw cane sugar. Fold in the rest of the ingredients.
2. Scoop into a 8×8 pan covered in parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Spread out evenly.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Remove and let cool, then slice into 12 bars. Store in an airtight container.
Total time: 35 minutes
