An Easy and Healthy On-the-Go Snack

Coconut Cashew Granola Bars: One of my go-to favorite snacks to keep around the house to grab on-the-go. I found it in a Runners World mag several years ago and tore the page out.

1 cup shredded coconut
2 cups raw oats
1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit - I've tried both blueberries and cherries!)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, shelled
1 cup raw cashews
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mold into 18 bars and place on a baking sheet. Bars will not increase in size, so they can be placed close together. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes.

What's your favorite healthy on-the-go snack? Did you try mine; what did you think?


  1. Are these the ones that you made from the staff women's conf. last year? I can't wait to make them!

  2. Yes they are the ones. :) Sam made those ones with all of the donated organic ingredients. This is the recipe, though.
