These yummy no-bake granola bars with crunchy almonds, tangy mixed berries, wholesome dates and creamy peanut butter will become your best friend, coming to your rescue whenever hunger strikes!

The combination of ingredients in the Date, Oats and Mixed Berries Granola Bars is such that they balance each other in flavour and texture, giving you a heavenly experience.

You can make a batch of these granola bars and store them in airtight containers. Store them in the fridge to retain their freshness and increase the shelf life. Carry one with you when you go out, so you will not be tempted to walk into a bakery when you are hungry!

When making these granola bars, make sure the peanut butter-honey mixture cools down a bit (should be warm) before mixing it with your hand, to avoid scalding your palm. Also grease your hands generously with oil before pressing out the mixture on the tray.

You can also try other bars like Chocolate Popcorn Marshmallow Bars and Oats, Walnut and Cornflakes Snack Bar .
