I love a good chewy granola bar, especially when it contains chocolate and fresh fruit on top. It is healthy, chewy, nutty, chocolatey, fruity, and the most important, it is approved from kids!
If you love chewy granola bars, trust me, this recipe is so delicious! Fig granola bars are loaded with natural ingredients like almonds, hazelnuts, honey and fresh figs. Being no bake, they require less time to prepare. Just mix the base-ingredients, set them in a baking pan, melt the chocolate, add figs and refrigerate to set in.
Figs are a good source of fibre, natural sugars and minerals. Also they are a good source of antioxidant, vitamin A and K. As known high fibre foods provide a feeling of fullness and can reduce hunger and cravings.
Can I use other fruit?
Yes, you can! you can use any fruit you prefer, for example apricot, apple, pear, strawberries, bananas etc. Just keep in mind, that some fruits may last less or more.
In case you want them vegan, replace honey with agave or maple sirup.
