Healthy Nutella® Granola Bars


This recipe is actually based off a recipe called Chewy, Nutty, Healthy Granola Bars that I modified. I made for my 4-H club and they loved it so much I made it a couple more times. The raisins are just a filler because I felt the granola bars were lacking without it. The granola bars still taste good without it. Dried fruit or nuts can be substituted.

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x11-inch baking dish.
