Got 5 minutes? That’s all it takes to make this vegan, no-bake granola bar recipe. Prep ahead of time and you can grab a healthy, smooth-but-crunchy bar on your way out the door for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. Or enjoy a bar as a sweet-tooth-satisfying snack when afternoon cravings strike. The most difficult part of this recipe? Waiting an hour for the bars to set in the fridge. But, luckily, one hour gets you 16 bars. Is it worth it? Make them and see for yourself! (But, yes. Totally worth it.)
