Berry Chia Granola Bars – these granola bars have blueberries and strawberries inside along with the nutritional punch of chia seeds. It’s like a berry cobbler, but in a granola bar.
I love having granola bars on hand for easy snacks or breakfasts on the go. I especially love when I have the time to make them myself instead of buying them in the store because I can control what goes in them (and what doesn’t!). Many of the store-bought versions are laden with sugar and ingredients that I can’t pronounce.
Because I love them so much & the convenience factor of having them on hand, I have several different recipes that I use to ensure that we never get tired of the same flavors and rotate them accordingly to what’s in season, what ingredients I have, or just what my tastebuds are craving at the moment.
Some of my favorites to make are:
- Strawberry Cobbler Granola Bars
- Dark Chocolate Cherry Granola Bars
- Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars
- 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter ‘Larabars’
- 2 Ingredient Cashew Cookie Bars
And now to add to that favorites list are these delicious Berry Chia Granola Bars.
Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very little calorie count and are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, & are a good source of protein. They really don’t have much flavor so they are a great thing to add to these granola bars for a nutritional power punch without it tasting like you’re eating ‘health food’, so to speak. I love them!
The chia seeds pair so well with the blueberries and strawberries in this recipe, and along with the oatmeal – they also do a really good job of filling you up.
Not only are they nutritious and delicious (oh lookie, I made a rhyme haha) – they are ridiculously easy to make too.
