How do you suppose these would would keep if they were vacuum sealed? And how long do you think they’d last?
great recipes.one question though.Do you think no bake granola bars can be kept in room temperature after being refridgerated??
Average Betty says
Yes – they are fine at room temp for… I’d say a day.
Sounds great. Did you use old fashioned or quick oats, does it matter which is used.
Can I put quinoa seeds in my granola bars?
Average Betty says
Of course! Experiment like crazy with this recipe :)

I made these and they were delicious. Instead of adding the oats and raspberries, I substituted them with Bare Naked Granola with almonds and dries raspberries and sprinkled a few mini-mini (really small) choc chips. They are heavenly. I swear I heard angels singing when I took my first bite. :-)
My granola bars looked dry. I followed the recipe accordingly.
