Tips for Making Vanilla Almond Granola Bars

Make sure to use real maple syrup, you will pay a little more for it, but it’s worth it!  Pure Maple syrup is one of our least processed options to sweeten our foods.

You can substitute other kinds of seeds for the chia seeds and sesame seeds, but make sure they are small, so that your bars will hold together well.

You can also try other kinds of nut butters.  We use almond butter because it is the only nut butter that our entire family can eat!
