Healthy sweet and salty chewy granola bars with pistachios and cranberries are great and it’s such a winning combination. I could stop right there, they’re that scrumptious and wholesome.
And you know what, I just love the mix of colours in this recipe. The green pistachios, the red juicy cranberries sweetened with apple juice and the white chips (if you go for white chocolate chips… but they’re healthier if you use the dark chocolate ones) make them deliciously pretty… and sweet & salty. Yumski!
Our French cousins (who I can now say hello to because one of my cookbooks is available in France are enamoured with all things American, especially food like cookies, muffins, bagels and bars like these ones.
Homemade granola bars with NO ADDED SUGAR are so much healthier than the store-bought ones. Have you ever noticed how store-bought bars almost always contain corn syrup? Do we really need to use these types of ingredients, which are far from being healthy? Yes, I’m not ashamed to say that I’m waging war on refined sugar. Hahaha!
I bet you’d love to sink your teeth into one right now.
Are you up for baking a batch?
Time to grab your wooden spoon!
