Why an eBook of homemade granola bar recipes?
I’m on a mission to help people eat healthier and live happier, which means replacing processed foods with homemade as much as possible.
Homemade granola bars taste better and are much healthier than the kind from a box. Have you ever read the ingredient list on a box of granola bars? I have and all I can say is yuck! They are often filled with transfats, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, chemical additives and preservatives.
Here’s an ingredient list from the side of the box of a popular national brand of granola bars…
INGREDIENTS: GRANOLA (WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED OATS, WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED WHEAT, BROWN SUGAR, SUNFLOWER OIL, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, DRIED UNSWEETENED COCONUT, HONEY, SODIUM BICARBONATE, NATURAL FLAVOR, WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE), SUGAR, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED PALM KERNEL AND PALM OIL*, CRISP RICE (RICE FLOUR, SUGAR, BARLEY MALT, SALT), NONFAT MILK, CORN SYRUP, SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS (SUGAR, CHOCOLATE LIQUOR, COCOA BUTTER, SOY LECITHIN, VANILLA EXTRACT), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, BROWN SUGAR, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, GLYCERIN, DRIED WHOLE MILK, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED SOYBEAN OIL*, COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, COCOA, SORBITOL, SOY LECITHIN, SALT, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, GLYCERYL LACTO ESTERS OF FATTY ACIDS, BHT (PRESERVATIVE), CITRIC ACID.
See what I mean. You would never include this stuff in granola bars you make yourself. Homemade Granola bars are a totally different experience. You make them in your own kitchen from real ingredients so you control what goes in them. You can make them chewy or crunchy with the flavors and additions you prefer.
The key to making granola bars at home is to find healthy granola bar recipes in flavors and styles that are right for you. That’s where my FREE eBook comes in. It has a great collection of recipes for homemade granola bars in a variety of styles and flavors – chewy, crunchy, simple, complex, baked and no bake.
So you can download and keep them all in one place. That way they will be ready and waiting for you whenever the desire to make a batch strikes. No searching all over the web, trying to find the perfect granola bar recipe!
If you ever have wondered how to make granola bars or how to make a granola bar recipe healthy, you will be surprised at just how easy it is! And just in case you are a kitchen novice, I’ve got a list of tips and tricks to make sure your healthy granola bars turn out perfectly.
If you find my Granola Bar Recipes eBook fun and useful, I would appreciate it if you share it with your family and friends. Or even better – send them the link to Simple Nourished Living (www.simple-nourished-living.com) so they can download their own copy.
And if you are still not convinced, here are a list of reasons that homemade granola bars are better than the packaged kind.
5 reasons Homemade Granola Bars are better than the kind from a package
1. Healthier. No transfats. No high fructose corn syrup. No artificial flavors. No preservatives. At home, we make granola bars from real ingredients.
2. Taste Better. Homemade granola bars taste fresh and delicious because they are.
3. Less Expensive. Homemade treats and snacks are cheaper than their packaged, individually wrapped counterparts, especially once you have a stocked pantry.
4. More Variety. You can make them just the way you like them – chewy, crunchy, with nuts, without. Like almonds? Add them. Hate raisins? Leave them out. You are in charge.
5. More Pleasure & Fun. Making homemade granola bars is much more enjoyable than buying them at the store and your house will smell better too.
