"A simple, soft, and chewy homemade granola bar recipe that’s perfectly delicious and a perfect afternoon snack idea. These honey granola bars are so easy and wholesome. They are naturally sweetened and a gluten-free snack. There are several substitutes for nuts in this recipe. You can use a mix of nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds, or peanuts would all work well. Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds would be great options too. You could also add up to 1/4 cup flax seeds if you wish."

NotesDried fruits such as cranberries, cherries, raisins, and apricots are perfect to add as a mix-in. Chop any fruit larger than a raisin. Finally, you can substitute honey for maple syrup.
