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.

The Easiest No Bake Protein Bar

The Easiest No Bake Protein Bar

Protein bars are awfully convenient. There's a catch: most of them are full of sugar and additives, comparable to a candy bar! I came up with a no bake protein bar recipe that uses five ingredients. You probably already have these in your kitchen, too. Use this recipe as a base for your no bake protein bar and add the extra ingredients of your choice if you want to play around with the flavour and texture. These protein bars are incredibly easy to make, completely customizable, and can be made vegan-friendly.

There's a certain je ne sais quoi about McDonald's fries that pulls at our heart strings. But with all the salt and hydrogenated oils that go into producing them, the popular side dish can very well send our hearts into a frenzied panic. McDonald's fries aren't only made with white potatoes, but with 18 other extra ingredients. Minimize the 'extra' by eating simply and well. You don't really need additives like dimethylpolysiloxane in your diet anyway. You won't need any hydrogenated oil for these easy baked carrot fries. Just 4-5 carrots, olive oil, and the seasoning of your choice. Go easy on the salt to make sure that your blood pressure doesn't spike.

They should be crunchy, fully cooked, and not too soft.
