It’s been two weeks since Brian and I unpacked our bags and many boxes in our very first house as homeowners.

Goodness has time flown!

I took a much needed (yet unplanned) social media detox during that time period.  Sure, I was occasionally on Instagram stories and checking the various outlets but I didn’t write my typical blog posts, share my normal amount, or engage all that much in the digital world.

This move was a pretty big deal, and I really wanted to take the two weeks before Brian started working to really soak in our new home and our time together in this new chapter of life.

Now that two weeks have past, all of the boxes are unpacked and put away but there is still so much to do!  I’m really trying to take things one moment at a time so I don’t miss a single beat.

These granola bars are part of some of those special moments we have created in our new house.

Some advice we received from friends that are homeowners was to meet our neighbors right away, so to make things easier I made a few batches of these granola bars to share with these new people in our lives.

They come together so quickly (15 minutes!) require no baking time, and can be stored in the freezer until you are ready to cut them or after they are already cut for use at a later date.

Gordman’s reached out to me asking to utilize some of their fun kitchen equipment.  Perfect timing for a new home owner!

I chose to purchase the mixing bowls in the pictures above, an adorable kitchen towel with fringe, a serving platter (particularly for all of the gatherings we plan on hosting!), and some very cute glass containers that will be perfect for chia seed jam, chia pudding, or overnight oats.

All of the items together ONLY cost $50.  There were so many adorable items in the store for home decorating, kitchen accessorizing, and making a house fit for a party or get together.  My only wish is that the location was closer to my house!

Recipe type: snack, bar, low FODMAP, granola, gluten free, dairy free
Cuisine: snack
Serves: 16 bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • ¼ raw unsalted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup hemp, chia, or flax seeds or a mixture of the 3
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup*
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Combine the oats, coconut, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and other seeds in a large bowl. Mix until combined.
  2. In a small sauce pan, heat the brown rice syrup and almond butter over medium heat. Constantly stir until bubbling.
  3. Remove the mixture from heat and mix in the vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt.
  4. Add the almond butter mixture to the oat mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with wax paper.
  6. Dump the granola mixture into the pan and flatten with damp fingers. Make sure to press into the pan very well!
  7. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove from the freezer and cut into 16 bars.
  9. Store in the refrigerator or the freezer.
Notes
*I prefer brown rice syrup in place of maple syrup or honey because it is very thick, which makes the bars stick together well and it may be low FODMAP (although it has not been tested).
Most of the ingredients in this recipe are considered low FODMAP according to the Monash University App.

Question of the Day:

  • Are you a home owner?
  • If you are a home owner, what advice do you have for newbies like me and future home owners!?

Comments

  1. These look like the exact texture of store-bought! Can’t wait to try for my kids!

  2. These do look delicious and super simple to make. I’m adding the recipe to my list!

    Congrats on the new house! My husband and I have owned ours for 3 years now (crazy!) and I’d say, beyond meeting neighbors, it’s good to be sure your house is in excellent condition & keep an eye on things. One thing we’ve learned, and as boring as it sounds, it’s part of homeownership, is to make sure your gutters are in good working order and moves all the water far away from your foundation. Clogged gutters & water getting under the foundation can cause huge issues. More fun – take your time to make it your own, safe, special space! Don’t feel rushed to decorate and fill every space. Make sure it reflects you and your husband and is the place you’ll most want to be! Enjoy!!

    • Tara Deal Rochford says:

      Thanks, Lisa!! I really appreciate the advice!! We have an older home (1930s!!) so checking the gutters and doing lots of maintenance is key. We are definitely taking our time to decorate. Everything has a home right now, but there are almost no decorations up. I really do want to take my time and we have some bigger projects that need to get completed before we decorate. I appreciate the advice!!!! Even though we are waiting to decorate…I want it all done now!

  3. These look delicious! I was planning to make some granola bars tonight, just might have to use this recipe!

  4. Totally fun to get some new kitchen stuff! And I love a good granola bar, so I’ll be trying these for sure!

    • Tara Deal Rochford says:

      Thanks, Sara!! Yes…kitchen stuff is the best!! Let me know what you think about these bars 🙂

  5. This is such perfect timing! A friend of mine is always jealous of my overnight oats (how easy and healthy they are) but he just can’t do the texture of them. Plus he likes to eat while he drives to work, so these granola bars would be a perfect fit. Will be sending them his way, thanks!

    • Tara Deal Rochford says:

      Yes! They will totally be a great fit for him!! Thanks for sharing and let me know if he has any feedback 🙂

  6. Two weeks and all your boxes are unpacked! I’m impressed. My family moved almost a decade ago and my folks have some unpacked boxes still in the storage unit.
    Easy homemade granola recipes are so helpful for us FODMAPers–it’s hard to find ones in the grocery store that don’t have inulin, wheat, honey, or high-FODMAP fruits or nuts.

    • Tara Deal Rochford says:

      My husband and I are a bit nuts when it comes to organizing and things of that nature 🙂

      I agree with you on searching for options at the grocery! While I prefer to use my own granola bars like these, FODY Foods, 88 Acres (the Chocolate Sea Salt), and Macro bars all have options that are lower in FODMAPs. Just takes a bit of ingredient label reading (typical!).

  7. These look so easy. I love making granola bars at home – though it’s hard not to just eat it from the bowl! 🙂
