A protein packed snack that tastes like your favorite bakery breakfast! Cinnamon Roll Granola Bars are full of cinnamon, white chocolate and whole grains from the oats!
I am all sorts of in love with today.
Surprise for a Monday, right? But we are finally in our new house! Never mind crawling over boxes and eating off paper plates, plastic silverware and having to venture to the garage to warm up my cup of coffee. No, that’s not normal?
Well, as nearly every new home owner knows, there are minor renovations upon moving into a new place. We are refinishing our kitchen cabinets and wood floors from oak to a pretty espresso. I can hardly stand it. But not having an access to a kitchen for the next week and half has me sorta freaking out.
The transformation will completely change the feel of the room. Hoping I fall in love. Always that side that we may not be happy with our choice but what is not to love about a clean, sleek kitchen? While I love the look of a white kitchen, I learned from our last house that they are very hard to keep clean and once you paint the cabinets white, there is no going back. Except ripping them out and starting over. And with that, all I see is dollar signs. Oya.
So dark it is! Matched with new, stainless steel appliances? My little heart is gonna pitter patter upon seeing it all put together!
You know what else makes my little heart pitter patter? These Cinnamon Roll Granola Bars!
As in, I devoured them all in a mere 3 days. Yes. Everything single bar. I couldn’t help myself with the almond butter and oat goodness.
These Cinnamon Roll bars are: Nutty. Chewy. Sweet. Almond Buttery. Filling. Wholesome. Highly Addicting. White Chocolate bites of goodness.
The come together quickly and all in one bowl. Less kitchen equipment is music to any cook’s ears. Simply add the dry ingredients and mix. Add your wet ingredients and give it a good stir. Keeping stirring. Get an arm workout in while you are at it. Place in a baking dish, sprinkle with white chocolate chips and bake.
I like to bake them slightly on the undercooked side as they will continue to cook once removed from the oven. But doing so ensures the bars stay tender, almost as uncooked cookie dough.
I consider that winning.
meal prep tips:
having granola bars on hand are not only easier on your wallet but they are also healthier! Filled with only ingredients you can pronounce and can control!
store in a sealed container in the fridge or individual baggies for grab-n-go options!
