Paleo Granola Bars are kid-friendly, can make a great Paleo breakfast and if you have them pre-made they are a great snack when you’re in a pinch.
I was initially inspired to make a Primal granola bar when I saw this post on Mark’s Daily Apple.
I created this recipe by going back and forth between Mark’s post and this one from Joyful Abode.
I played around a bit with the ingredients they used and the method and this recipe was my initial result.
Since the first time I made these, I have played around with the ingredients and the process a lot and I highly recommend you do so as well and make your own version. If you’re a fan of strawberries, you might want to check out my Strawberry Paleo Snack Bars.
The most recent version of these I made, I tested out reducing the honey by 50%, replacing the sunflower butter with coconut butter and then dehydrating them after 1 hour of resting in the fridge. They didn’t stay together as well as they did before but the dehydrator created a great granola that I then stored in a mason jar in my pantry.
If you don’t have a dehydrator, I totally understand because it’s not an everyday use product, and instead of using a dehydrator you can try baking them in the oven. I’ve yet to give it a try myself but I’ve seen other bloggers successfully experiment with it.
If you’re not a fan of granola bars, but used to be a cereal fan, you can easily turn this Paleo granola bar recipe into a Paleo cereal by breaking them up, throwing them into a bowl with some milk (coconut, almond or grass-fed milk) and shoveling it into your piehole by the spoonful for a tasty Paleo breakfast. :)
The Best Pre-Made Paleo Granola
If you’re not into making your own Paleo Granola, then I highly recommend you try The Granilla Bar.
Jeff & I first met Denise at Paleo f(x) where we learned about how The Granilla Bar came about. We also got to try all the different flavors.
Out of the different options, by far, we enjoy the Dark Chocolate Honey bars the most. Plus, the Granola Crumble Cereal is a great alternative to the sugar filled and corn based varieties of cereal you’ll find at the grocery store.
