Granola bars are the perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack. These copycat KIND bars pack a ton of flavor and a lot of interesting textures - snappiness on the top, chewiness on the bottom, and a lot of crunch in between. They are vegan, grain-free, and can easily be made nut-free.
Mix all the ingredients. Add the almonds, coconut flakes, and maple syrup into a medium bowl. Stir until well combined.
Bake. Preheat the oven to 325°F/165°C. Transfer the mixture into an 8 x 8 inch/20 x 20 cm parchment paper-lined baking dish and press firmly into an even layer. Bake the granola bars until firm and lightly golden around the edges, about 35 minutes. Allow the bars to cool completely, then cut into 12 even bars.
Store. Leftover granola bars keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 month. For longer term storage, freeze in an airtight container with a piece of parchment paper in between each granola bar (so they don't stick together as they freeze) for up to 3 months.
