Fab Fit Friday: Back To School Granola Bars & A Giveaway!



 You can either sigh when you hear the words "back to school" or you can smile and think of all the positives that go along with it! A new year means football games, dances, being with your friends, having a chance to show off your competitive side with your grades, sports or extra activities and a clean slate to a healthy lifestyle. Take advantage of the new year and work on a new you! Go after your goals and work harder than you ever have before.


 Here is a healthy recipe that you can add to the "healthy school snacks" It's perfect for on the go and super easy to make. I made about 20 of these yesterday morning and bagged them up to snack on for the next couple weeks. This recipe comes in handy no matter who you are or where you plan on eating them. Its perfect for the office, sending your kids to daycare, road trips, before sports, study snacks and breakfast. It's also vegan for those looking for healthy vegan recipes.It's so natural and healthy that guilt wont haunt you after you're done.




 Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Organic Coconut
  • 1 Large Banana (Extra Ripe)
  • 1 Cup Whole Grain Oats 
  • 1 Tbsp Organic Vanilla Extract 
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seed 
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Mini Vegan Chocolate Chips 
  • 1 Packet Truvia (Your Choice Of Sweetener)
Add banana, coconut, flax seed, vanilla,  oats and Truvia to electric mixer and mix on low speed. 
Add unsweetened almond milk 1 tbsp at a time slowly increasing the mixer's speed. 




Preheat oven to 350
Grease a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
Pour granola mixture onto baking sheet and spread out into a square shape with a spatula.
Try to spread and flatten the mixture evenly as possible without puncturing the shape. 



Evenly distribute the mini chocolate chips on the granola and lightly press them down.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown.



Before the granola starts to harden take a knife and cut the square into 8 even rectangles.
