Nut-Free No Bake Chewy Granola Bars


My family is addicted to these granola bars and they are perfect for breakfast, a snack or even as a dessert. These bars are also packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats to help balance blood sugar (a great way to manage hunger, regulate mood and contribute to better sleep).

Made without nuts and with Wowbutter or Sunflower butter, these chewy granola bars are great make-ahead staples for school lunches. But the recipe is versatile enough to make them as you like for home.
