Chewy Cranberry Orange Granola Bars

Well hello! Happy Monday … errrr … Wednesday to you! I am clearly coming atcha’ quite late this week. But! I bring a peace offering in the form of these chewy cranberry orange granola bars. And oooo baby are they good. So snack-able, so fun for fall! (Or really anytime of the year.)

In case it isn’t blatantly obvious, I am a bit all over the place this week (story of my life lately). But, I do have another recipe that I promise to squeeze in before the weekend!

Homemade thick & chewy cranberry orange granola bars! Easy, sturdy and freezer-friendly, they are a perfect grab & go snack or breakfast!

To bring you up to speed, I spent all of last week at another intensive training for my coursework (which was both awesome and exhausting). Andddd then proceeded to return home to a complete mess of a house. Ahhhh construction, I am kinda sorta totally over you.

Everything is moving along fine, we’re just at a point where I have pretty much zero privacy and the house is completely covered in dust and grime (and um, lots of bugs from all the windows and doors being open all the time <— Eeeep! This may be the worst part for me!).

But enough about those pesky bugs, let’s get to today’s recipe! Thick & chewy homemade granola bars! That are also totally sturdy & FREEZER-FRIENDLY!

Can we say quadruple threat?? I think so. They also happen to be gluten free, dairy free, include a vegan option AND are full of fall flavors. Win to the wine. <— Yup, just wrote wine instead of win. I may or may not need a drink this week.
