Recipe Notes

  • Make-ahead & Freezing instructions: The bars stay fresh at room temperature for up to 7 days. The bars freeze well for up to 2 months.
  • The cookie butter can be substituted for almond butter or any nut butter of choice. The bars may not have the same chocolate chip cookie taste though.
  • For the sweetener, sugar-free maple syrup was used, but feel free to use honey or regular maple syrup.
  • For add-ins, try using different add-ins, like nuts or dried fruits (up to ⅔ cup in total). These granola bars are highly adaptable.
