  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hey thank you looks awesom… just wanted to know alternative for peanyt butter… am allergic to peanuts…. also i thin honey should never be heated. It loses its value….

  • Can you make these in bulk and freeze them? Would they stay good for a while that way? That would be perfect hiking food to always have ready.

  • How do you fink I can incorporate some apricots and maybe apricot jam in there? Would that still go even though you have a nut butter

  • Hi Shasha,

    I simply love your recipes and did try couple of them at home..

    I just need 1 suggestion from you, since me and my family are vegetarians… Can you let us know what can we use instead of Eggs..

    Basically we want replacement of eggs as we don’t consume them.

    Will be highly greatful to you.

    Love from India…

  • Can I use dates instead of raisin? N can I use cashew? I love your channel very much have been watching for 2 years ❤… Love you Gemma

  • When you said rice crispies, I think I heard you right, but is that Rice Krispies cereal or something else? Unless it was due to the close up, they looked longer than the cereal, but the cereal seems to be all I can find online. Thanks in advance for your help.

  • I made your recipe only a few hours after you uploaded it as I am now a big fan of your wonderful cookery channel. You have no idea how hard it is to restrain myself from eating it before leaving it in the fridge for the extra long time that you advised. I know it will taste like heaven as I tried it before it went in the fridge. Many thanks once again for inspiring me so much.

  • Thank you for sharing this recipe! I never thought to use the rice cereal before and am excited to try these!
    My question…
    Why do they need to be refrigerated?
    I like to make my snacks ahead of time and bag them individually in small snack bags that I reuse. This helps me so I’m not tempted to eat more than I should������

  • Just made this recipe and it’s so delicious! My 5 year old son helped and couldn’t wait to try these. Thank you for a great recipe!

  • What is it with people making these videos and not including measurements. It’s useless when you don’t know how much of each ingredient to use.

  • Your little girl baby is so precious! Love the name Ellie. The granola bars look super easy. Can’t wait to try this recipe out. Thanks for sharing!

  • Made the fruit paste out of raisins, apricots and dates as I had a little of each but not enough of just one type! Turned out great, as always. I’m impressed that even though I can’t usually bake to save my life, your recipes always turn out great! They’re so foolproof and quick, I made this when I got in from work and will be taking a slice (or 2) with me every day as an energy boost. Thanks again ����

  • They really look delicious but I am not a fan of peanut butter. Can i substitute this by anything else and yet obtain the same texture?

  • Congradulations on the birth of Elle she’s beautiful!…Can’t wait to try these ��…I’m 5 months pregnant myself so I’m sure these will come in handy when my little girl arrives ☺️ x

  • Where can we get cranberry? Also any alternative to it? In Mumbai any specific stores I will get cranberries like big bazar, hypercity?

  • I was going to look for a granola bar recipee, and boom you uploaded this! Did you read my mind? Lol… Thanks for the recipe, I’ll definitely try this ��

  • Great video! Do you remember in the 80s a granola bar commercial with a 50s rock and roll lyrics song? That song is stuck in my head forever! ��

  • OMGGGG LOOK AT YOU!!!! �� Do you remember when you first started I said, “YOU WOULD GO FAR”!!! Well… here you are, doing SO amazing with your channel.. as expected! ☺️ I am SO happy and excited to see your channel doing so well and how far you have grown! Keep being the sweet AMAZING cook you are!!! Can’t wait to see you in another year.. WOW! �� LETS GO 100,000!!! ������������

  • This looks like an easy and delicious recipe!
    Question: how do I make blueberry yogurt granola bars out of these?
    Could you please share the yogurt coating recipe for the same? Thanks in advance!

  • I had seen this video when it came out a few years ago but never tried to make it. And today, I made the chocolate granola bars and they turned out to be the BEST GRANOLA BARS I HAVE EVER HAD. Thanks to you, Gemma! This recipe is a BOMB! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Hello, This is exactly what i was looking for..Thank you so much.
    i have a quetion.
    What will be the shelf-life of these super nutritioius,healthy and tasty bars?

  • Sorry first time trying to make this granola bars, I don’t think I put enough liquid you didn’t say how much to put. Came out to soft. I have the Recipe so I’ll try it again tomorrow. Thanks

  • I didn’t know she was your first! Congratulations.:) I hope you are getting a ton of rest. I admire you for keeping up with the amazing videos! All your recipes are incredible.

  • Healthy, plant-based fats are good for you and can help you lose weight. Keep the fat content low, however, as too much fat and fruit in the same green smoothie might cause gas and bloating…. While calories from whole foods are better for you, too many calories from any source may sabotage your weight loss efforts.

  • Hi thanks for the great recipe! I just tried it last night and ate this morning, I was so delish! I love the idea of dates replacement of refine sugar.:) how long I can store in the fridge? (Hope I won’t finish in two days!) ��

  • I love your healthy recipes.
    Can u please give some savoury recipes. It’s pretty easy to find n drool over sweet recipes, but savoury ones are available infrequently. I love nuts and savoury snacks. Would be great to have some shortcut healthy snacks at hand.

  • I made this recipe for the second time and adapted it a bit more on this occasion. I included a large fresh ‘easy-peel’ satsuma. I accidentally found that It was far quicker and much easier to scrape off the pith from the peel to get the zest than it was to finely grate the zest while it was still on the fruit. I think this was because it was a satsuma, having much softer peel and pith compared to an orange. I added the zest strips and satsuma segments to the blender, together with the softened dates and it easily made a great smooth paste. I then added chopped dried apricots and desiccated coconut (instead of the chopped nuts), oats, melted milk chocolate (instead of plain) and peanut butter to the food mixer. The recipe came out brilliantly and it was really fresh and fruity tasting. Another great success due to your original inspiration and I appreciate you very much indeed, Sascha.

    �� deve ser uma deliicia!
    Desculpe-me, mas não entendo a língua que você fala.
    Mesmo assim desejo de coração muita prosperidade pra este Canal.��������������������

  • They charge so much at shops while you can make them at home simple for cheap oats are super cheap dates one box of Persian dates of 500 grams is no more than 2 Euro and little bit of peanut butter which is cheap too, crazy �� and so much more fun to make it at home

  • Hello Gemma! First of all I’d like to thank for all your Amazing recepies that I’m willing to try asap!!!
    Please tell me, since there’s no rice Krispies in my country, how can I replace it?

  • Why would someone give this a thumbs down if not for jealousy and bad volition towards another human being.

    Thanks for sharing. I will try this. It seems pretty easy to make and packed full of goodness.

  • I know it and I WILL watch probably most of your vids this night
    I like your accent and I feel like listening to cooking advice today
    Will try some of them out pretty soon:)

  • Easy recipe. Thank you for sharing. I learn a lot from you. This is a hard time with covid 19 and we have to stay home but I love to stay home and watch you on your channel. Thanks again.

  • It varies by child I guess. Don’t remember how often our older son Daniel fed since he was on a lactose free formula and most mornings were covered by Lee or my mother since I’m usually up around noon and regularly fall asleep around two in the morning. I don’t think he ate that often when I cared for him. He was born at 26 weeks, my milk was infected since an infection is what booted him out early, and he was given bottles and pacifiers while in his first two months in the NICU. He kept regressing in progress until he was on a lactose free formula. With our younger son Thomas he was born at 40 weeks and six days so I breastfed him soon after giving birth to him and every two hours until he died of SIDS seven weeks later. I still produced milk for months after he died. I miss him so much. Daniel makes me miss him more and he looked exactly like Lee so I’ll never get over losing him.

  • This looks really healthy and such a nice snack for my husbands lunches. I will definitely give this a try today. Will also add some coconut that I have. All your recipes are wonderful. Needing to eat healthy it is nice to find you here. Have a great day.

  • I found your channel by accident the other day. I’m a power lifter who’s quite strict with his diet and I gave this a try but added a scoop of whey protein to the mix. Took them to the gym for my friends all gone in five minutes. Your recipes are excellent and I’ll be trying a lot more of them. ������������

  • No butter. gross. And anytime honey is heated it kills all the good things honey has to offer. I’m watching this just to get the basic idea but this has many flaws, IMHO. Thanks for sharing, tho.

  • Each time I hit the bell for notifications get a COPPA pop-up telling me I can’t perform that action on videos with children. I’m not watching the videos (right now) I’m just trying to find one of yours that doesn’t have this restriction… but I don’t remember seeing kids in your videos. Have you ticked the wrong box somewhere about your content?

  • Thanks for the video. I made these after watching your video. Bars were really very tasty but when I cut them, these are broken. Thoda bikhre bikhre ho rahe hain. Can you please tell me why it is so?

  • Thank you for this new recipe. Soo excited to try it out. I literally just made your No bake chocolate cake, it’s absolutely delicious��
    Your voice really compliments your videos,especially when your making desserts that have chocolate �� ��somehow your voice makes me think of chocolate

  • I wonder how agave syrup might be in this, also I thought sweetened coconut flakes, dark chocolate chips and banana chips or dried mango might be tasty.

  • Why is your peanut butter so runny.. one we get here is dry n thick which makes all the difference in binding the bars. What can be done to make it runny without adding oil.
    Love your channel.

  • Hey can I make all your Oat pancake and bread recipices with oats soaked overnight in apple cider vinegar, or will the consistency and texture be off?
