Best Almond Butter No Bake Granola Bars – just THREE ingredients! This version uses Chocolate Coconut Cashew & Almond Nut Butter and it is DELICIOUS.
This recipe for Best Almond Butter No Bake Granola Bars is sponsored by LARA Nut Butters.
Ever since I tried this smoothie last year, I’ve been in love with almond butter.
I’ve made that smoothie countless times. I even make them ahead of time so I can make them easily in the morning on my way out the door. I’ve shared my love for them on social media but have never posted about it here because, well, the recipe isn’t mine to share. But oh, how I do love those things madly!
So when LARA Nut Butter came asking if I’d create a recipe with their Cashew & Almond Butter, I couldn’t say yes!! fast enough. For starters, “CASHEW and Almond Butter”?? Um, yes. PLEASE.
Then I discovered that the flavors they were sending over were none other than Chocolate Coconut and Banana Nut. Both flavors have WHOLE (<—–WHOLE!!!) sunflower, pumpkin and flax seeds added, too. Doesn’t that sound like the BEST almond butter?
I was pretty excited to try. But what to make?
I decided to keep it simple and make something that 1) tastes fantastic, of course and 2) that I could grab on my way out the door when I need a tasty, delicious snack for either myself or my girls. There are so many times that I’m halfway out the door when I realize that it’s lunchtime or I haven’t yet had breakfast – and I’m starving. These No Bake Granola Bars are so perfect!
The best part is that they take about five minutes to throw together. I keep them in my refrigerator, otherwise they tend to get a bit too soft for my liking. I’ve even kept them in the freezer and love them both ways!
I made a quick video to show you just how simple these better-for-you treats are to make!
Another thing I love? You can pick up LARA Nut Butters at Costco! You know I’m a HUGE fan of all things Costco (have you ever tried a product sold there that wasn’t exceptional?) so I love that I can pick this up anytime. If you make these, be sure to let me know and tag me @thewickednoodle – I want to see!
