No-Bake Autumn Granola Bars

No-Bake Autumn Granola Bars

Making your own granola bars is a good idea. With the right amount of spices, your house will smell like autumn in an instant. But there's a catch to baking — it often requires time (and a lot of it). These no-bake autumn granola bars are here to the rescue. They will put you in a seasonal mood and they're perfect snacks that you can enjoy at home or at school with your friends. I've included the ingredients for the base of this recipe below. The add-ins are all optional. I encourage you to experiment with them and add different combinations of your favorite seeds and nuts into the no-bake autumn granola bars.

If we could eat one dish (and only one dish) forever, it would be soup. It's perfect for fall and great for you. This healthy carrot soup can be prepared in under an hour. It uses ingredients that you probably have stocked in your pantry - no need to visit the grocery store. For a bit of extra flavor, substitute some homemade or reduced sodium vegetable stock for the water. Make this healthy carrot soup as an appetizer, or serve it as a meal with whole grain protein banana bread.
