Vegan Granola Energy Bars

Hi guys!

How was your weekend?

I am so excited to share with you these amazingly delicious and nutrient dense Vegan Granola Energy Bars!



The below picture is a really fancy, gourmet kitchen with every gadget any chef could ever dream of. It is also my new office. More on that later!!




Now for the Vegan Granola Energy Bars recipe...I got the original recipe HERE but let me tell ya, I didn't follow any of it. I read the first step and then ran with it. Definitely ran in the wrong direction according to the instructions, but they turned out SO wonderful that I think it was a blessing in disguise =).

PS. These bars are not too heavy and just as good the next day!
