In this instructable, I will show you how to create Healthy granola bars with Nuttvia. The reason why I wanted to do this recipe was that I wanted to create a healthier alternative for all those granola bars out there on the market and so that is why I am using Nuttvia. Nuttvia is a hazelnut spread that contains 97% less sugar than the other brands and has no palm oil which makes it a healthier option from every hazelnut spread out there. This granola bar could be perfectly used as a pre-workout in order to get some chocolate and increase your energy throughout the time you are working out. The granola bar is a portion of perfect comfort food because it is easy to eat anywhere and easy to make.
Ingredients: 2 cups rice crispy cereal
2 cups oats (I used 1-minute oats)
1 cup Nuttvia (or peanut butter, etc.)
1/2 cup honey 1/4 brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Step 1: Beginning
Gather all ingredients necessary to create the recipe of Nuttvia Granola Bars and grab a bowl and mix together 2 cups of rice crispies and 2 cups of oats, then set them aside.
Step 2: The Nuttvia Mixture
In another bowl, melt together 1 cup of Nuttvia, ½ cup of honey, ¼ cup of brown sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract until smooth and thin. (About 1 min)
Step 3: Mix It All Up!
dAd the Nuttvia mixture to the rice crispies and mix well. Add any additional toppings.(I used ½ cup chocolate chips, but you can add whatever you’d like such as cranberries, dried fruit, etc.
Step 4: Freeze It
Press mixture firmly into a pan and set in the fridge for at least 30 min. I recommend keeping it in longer so it doesn't fall apart while cutting.
Step 5: Ready to Eat!
After getting it outside and cutting it, store it in the fridge in an airtight container. Now you can enjoy your healthy granola bar :).
