Trail Mix Granola Bars
I am so excited to partner with Nuts.com to bring you today’s recipe. I found out about Nuts.com about six months ago and have been hooked ever since. I love their products, their packaging, how quickly the products arrive, and the large selection that they have. It’s not only nuts, you guys! They have awesome baking flours, dried fruit, sweeteners, chocolate, snacks, and so much more.
How do you make chewy granola bars?
Mix up the dry ingredients, heat the wet ingredients, mix it all up, flatten, and let set!
Some of my favorite items on Nuts.com are: Dried Pineapple, Powdered Strawberries, Macadamia Nuts, Dried Cranberries, Dried Blueberries, Coconut Flakes, Honey com jar, Plantain Chips, Dark Chocolate Turbinado Sea Salt Almonds, and Vanilla Beans.
