Girl On A Budget Granola Bars


We are in week #2 of our budget challenge with Natures Fare and we are still alive! Last weeks food highlight? These amazing granola bars. 5 ingredients and so delicious! When do you get to see my receipts and how we survived on only $125.00 a week at a health food store??? Week #4 I will reveal all of my tips, tricks and final recap. Until then, enjoy my updates and recipes along the way.

Makes-20 Bars

  • 2 cup packed dates, pitted
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup honey (or sub maple syrup )
  • 1/4 cup creamy salted natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3 cups gluten free quick oats
  • optional additions: add any seeds, dried fruit or homemade chocolate you have kicking around


Mix all dry ingredients together. Warm honey and peanut butter in sauce pan till smooth. Once smooth pour over dry ingredients and stir till everything is mixed nicely. Place dates in a vitamix and blend till they form a sticky paste. If they are hard, just soak them for 10 minutes or so to soften them up. Add your dates and spread mixture on a pan covered in wax paper. Freeze for 30 minutes and enjoy~~*
All of these ingredients can be purchased at a grocery store like Nature’s Fare.

      I really like Genuine Health vegan protein. Easy on the stomach, taste good and the company is totally open to you calling and asking questions regarding their products. Hope this helps!
