Chewy Chocolate Goji Berry Granola Bars

Chocolate Goji Berry Granola bars packed with healthy fruit and nuts, held together with a splash of chocolate. I’m sure the calorie to heath ratio is a bit off, but so good.

Granola is simple. Stupid simple. And yet time after time, I find myself throwing various boxes into the shopping cart or pre-made bars packed with who knows what. I dig granola on the go. When we are out mountain biking it’s a quick fuel option. And because I’m generally pretty lazy, I figure it makes a half decent breakfast.

I can’t help but wonder, since – as I mentioned – it is so darned simple, why I don’t make it more often. That is until I make it. Sure, granola is packed with healthy nuts and stuff, but once you add whatever’s keeping it all together in and a splash of chocolate, I’m sure the calorie to heath ratio is a bit off. And when I do make it, it’s shove in your face all day long worthy. Not the occasional ‘bar on the go’.

And shove in my face I did.

These snack bars came to be when Brookside asked me to taste test some of their new flavors. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after first bite I kind of fell in love. There’s more chocolate than fruit – shhh, don’t tell mom – so it makes for a great texture when noshing on. Throwing it into the granola was the perfect splash of fruit and chocolate flavor it needed to spice things up.
