  • It’s Father’s Day 2020!:) Wanted to do some baking for my dad and he likes granola and peanuts so I thought let me make him homemade granola bars!:) Thanks so much for this simple and easy recipe.I packed it up with oats,peanuts,flaxseeds & raisins with some chocolate chips and a chocolate and peanut butter drizzle on top.Don’t know how it taste and won’t be trying it cause I actually don’t like nuts on a whole but my mom tried the batter and she said it was really good lol.Hope my dad enjoys it!!!:) Happy Father’s Day to Mr.Stafford and to all the Bigger Bolder Baking fathers tehe.Have a great day all:D

  • I made this with chocolate peanut butter n came out super….also added sesame seeds…n sunflower seeds….thanks for the recipe….hunger savoiur….amazing flavor n healthy….thanks Aarti.

  • I did use honey but added 5 dates soaked in boiling water and then drained and mashed them. I skipped chocolate, rice cereal, and dried cranberries (I wanted dates instead for less sugar) and used walnuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, and ground ginger with a pinch of salt. The small seeds made for a good crunch. Coconut flakes would also be yummy. Soooo good! Thanks for sharing! I am a new mom too, so this will help me snack more often. I think I will keep a double batch of some version of this in weekly rotation. Total game changer!

  • Mam dates nutritious hote hain nutritionist nai hote
    Apne bolne main galti ki hai isko sahi kar lijiye isliye comment kia hai apki kami batane ke liye nai kia
    Recepie achi hai

  • all your recipes are great…thank you..
    please do not opt for gloves or other plastic…we can always wash our hands and also,the nerves in the tip of our fingers send the love from our heart into the dishes we make…gloves can’t do that..
    our health is important, so is Mother Earth…why use plastic?:)

  • Hi Aarti,I really loved it,but am a diabetic patient,can I have it this or not, because my doctor and sister’s says you don’t eat honey and date, please reply me thank you ������

  • I know you said quick cooking oats work really well with this recipe but I have old fashioned oats in my pantry would that still work as well?

  • These chewy bars turned out great! My family loved it and gave me the permission to make more! Usually they never like stuff I make, but they loved this. I’m happy. Thank you ma’am

  • How many dates are needed and how long do they have to soak for? This looks delicious!

    Edit: Online it says 1-2hrs or even overnight (just until they’re soft). I wonder if they should also be covered ��

  • Hi Aarti, can you please help me with a substitute for Honey? We don’t eat Honey..can we do anything with jaggery and How?
    Thanks for a healthy recipe!

  • Irish people are so nice and so are you Gemma! (I was educated by Irish nuns)
    You create fantastic recipes but it is such a pity that they are not nutritionally healthy. Microwave! (Radiates food and changes it detrimentally) Sugar! (Cause of diabetes epidemic) Rice crispies! (Empty calories, high carb…not whole and processed as well).
    Every generation is getting sicker due to only these few factors plus many more. For their own good and health, children should not be “spoilt” with addictive!!!!!!!! and unhealthy foods. I hope you will think about this (also for your own health) and switch to what God made for us in abundance.

  • How do you store these? (In the fridge or outside on the counter?) Thanks for the video, these bars turned out really good and delicious! ��❤

  • Hey
    Loved these recipes
    Can you please make diet related recipes. Please!
    I follow only your recipes as I think they are the most authentic and easy ones.
    And I would be really delighted if you just upload some more healthy recipes.
    Thanks!

  • Hi I’m your new subscriber
    Please suggest me the processer /blender(how do we call) to grind the nuts as well as dates paste? Thank you

  • Gemma hopefully you see my comment

    Does pancake syrup (low sugar) work, replace Honey. Guess I’m looking for a low sugar version ��

    Also craisins taste better, not as sweet as raisins.

  • I have made these a couple of times according the recipe. It’s sticky when I transfer it to the baking pan. But after overnight in the fridge, when I take it out, it starts falling apart >_< What do I need to add to make it more sticky?

  • my daughter has just made these, she has a lot of food intolerances and buying these in the shops are expensive and difficult to get her ones she can have. these were not only fast and easy to make, but we know exactly what is in them, and she can experiment on different fillings, they will be fantastic to take with us on our long bike rides.

  • Please link the amounts of each ingredient for proportion or say it while doing it. So cumbersome all your recipes to find out how much to add

  • Hi Sara, it’s quite difficult to find Brown Rice Syrup in my country. Is there any substitute for it? Can I use maple syrup instead? Thank you. Btw, your baby is super cute! ��

  • Thank you so much,I tried the snickers bars and it tastes increadibly good, and please include more dates in your awesome recipes.��

  • Look up Adventist World Radio, Unlocking Bible Prophecies with Cami Oetman. If it’s in the Bible, I believe it. If it’s not in the Bible, it’s not for me.

  • Hey there, this is Afrin from Bangladesh. I have a little query: how long will these bars remain well in a container outside of the refrigerator? Please do reply.

  • Hello Gemma, I really love making your recipes as I made these granola bars I like them a lot but I want little less sweet can u tell me how much I should take honey and brown sugar? Please guide me I really like the caramel taste.
