Walnut Cranberry Granola Bars


  • 3 Cups Old Fashioned (rolled) Oats
  • 1 Cup California Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened or Sweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 8 Large Medjool Dates, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and line an 11×7 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together oats, walnuts, coconut, cranberries, brown sugar, cinnamon and dates in a large bowl.
  3. Add honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
  4. Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and stick together when pressed between your fingers.
  5. Transfer to prepared baking dish and press down very firmly using a spatula or your hands. (Covering mixture with a piece of parchment or plastic wrap and pressing down with your fingers makes this easier.)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, then let cool completely. Remove from pan and cut into 8 equal bars.
