Let me start off by saying I never thought I would be posting a granola recipe. I’ve never met a granola that I have liked. Then I decided to try these Snickerdoodle Granola Bars and everything changed. I can’t stop eating them. We’ve already established that I am a complete cinnamon addict so when I saw the ingredient list I knew I had to give them a try. By the way, I do promise I will share lots of non-cinnamon recipes too!

The texture of these is what sealed the deal for me. They were so incredibly moist and chewy. The best part is that they are healthier than Snickerdoodle cookies too!

Here ya go…

  1. I’m totally in love with these nutty chocolate chip vegan granola bars. They’re more like a hearty nut bar.

  2. Oh goodness, I feel like I definitely need to make these! I love a good granola and I love the flavors in these bars. I’m so excited that they’re fairly healthy (way healthier than cookies)!!

    • Alexandra, you definitely need to make these soon! They are delicious!! When you do, come back and let me know what you think! Thanks for leaving a comment!

  3. These granola bars look and sound delicious. Although, I can’t believe you said you don’t like granola. I am just the opposite… a granola fanatic!

    I’m wondering what the cream of tartar does and if you could omit it from the recipe. Any idea?

    • You are going to have to share a favorite granola recipe with me now since you said you are a granola fanatic! I am anxious to try another kind! As for the cream of tartar, not sure what would happen if you omit it. I know every really delicious snickerdoodle cookie I have had always has cream of tartar in it. I might have to try it without next time and see what happens. Good question. Sorry I don’t have an anwer. Thanks for commenting and let me know when you make them!

  4. do these have to be baked?

  5. Man! I love these! Anything snicker doodle is good with me!
