As the self proclaimed Granola Queen (both in terms of the noun “granola” and the verb “granola”), I have played around with making granola bars. This granola bar is a winner. It takes under 30 minutes, requires no baking, has no sugar (unless you count honey and/or dates as sugar), and is delicious (obviously). MAKE ‘EM!
* 1 cup pitted dates
* 1/4 cup honey
* 1/4 cup creamy nut butter (I used almond)
* 1 cup chopped nuts (I used hazelnuts, hands down my all time favorite nut)
* 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
Seriously, this is my new go-to-snack and recipe. I love the sweetness (but not overly so), crunchy (but not breaking any teeth), rich (but still able to eat more of these bad boys, and dinner, too). It is like an old school peanut butter and honey sandwich, but with some hazelnuts and white chocolate. Have a great weekend!

Hazelnuts are my favorite too. My superfood.
