  • 2 cups whole grain jumbo oats


  • 1 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1 cup raw almond nuts
  • ¼ cup pine nuts


Dried Fruits

  • ½ cup banana chips
  • ½ cup dried mango
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • ¼ cup dried goji berries

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 1 cup pitted dates (or 30 pieces)


  • In a bowl, mix jumbo oats, almonds, cashews, pine nuts, dried cranberries, dried mango, goji berries, dried banana, whole chia seeds, sesame seeds, and pumpkin seeds with a spatula.
  • Set the mixture aside.
  • In a food processor, blend the pitted dates and honey until smooth.
  • Use a spatula or your hands to combine the two mixtures.
  • Then, coat the dry ingredients with the honey.
  • Spread the mixture evenly on the tray or granola bar molds.
  • Place parchment paper on top and compress it with a rolling pin or wooden hammer.
  • Refrigerate it for two hours or overnight.
  • Slice the granola bars to your preferred size.
  • Wrap them in parchment paper for storage and on-the-go snacking!



  • Use your hands to mix the dry ingredients and the sweetener mixture.
  • Wrap the granola bars in parchment paper and store them in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags to prolong shelf life.
  • Instead of pressing the mixture into a baking pan, you can spread it evenly on a silicone cereal bar mold using a rolling pin.
  • If you used the silicone cereal bar mold, gently remove the bars from the mold and transfer them onto a plate or parchment paper to serve or pack.
  • Limit consumption to 50 grams of granola every day.
  • Granola bars that are too soft may be due to the lack of sweeteners that combine the ingredients together.
  • You can try adding more honey to the pitted dates before blending them in the food processor.
  • Furthermore, ensure that you are coating all of the ingredients in the sweetener to allow them to adhere and stick together.
