As you may already know, I had a baby a couple months ago (December 2017). These super yummy, high-fiber, energy packed granola bars came about because I was looking for a way to increase my milk production. Yes, I’m breastfeeding my little one and wanted to ensure I was making enough milk. I’ve read in a bunch of places that oats can help a mother produce more milk. What better way to enjoy oats than in an energy bar not to mention the added fiber benefits that help with post-partum bowel regulation. These energy bars make for a win, win!
Once I perfected my recipe, I ate 2-3 bars a day. Within a few days, I noticed my little needed less supplementation (formula). I also noticed my bowels had regulated… which is always a good thing, right?
These granola energy bars taste like a candy bar. I tried adding white chocolate but found it was too sweet for my liking. The cranberries make these bars so good. They add a sweet tartness that’s addicting.
These no-bake energy bars are so easy and quick to make. They literally take maybe 5 minutes to mix up. Here’s a little video to show you how easy they are to make.

You will find a batch of these in my fridge all the time these days. Not only do these babies help my milk supply, they’re also like my “healthy” candy bars. I don’t know if it’s the sweet-tart cranberries, the crunch of the rice crispies, or the rich peanut butter. All I know is that they are gooooOOOOD!
These easy no-bake energy bars are fantastic to have on hand for those crazy mornings or when you want a little snack before or after a workout.
What’s your favorite high energy snack?
