Homemade Granola Bars + Stress Busting Tips

If you’re reading this recipe, you might have seen me talk about it on CTV this morning! I was on there chatting about some stress busting tips, from a lifestyle and a food perspective.

There are two great things about this recipe that are important as it relates to stress. First of all, the recipe contains a fermented protein powder from Genuine Health. The reason this rocks is because fermented foods are great for your tummy and your digestion, both which can be thrown for a loop when you’re stressed.

Secondly, the recipe contains lots of almonds & chia seeds, which are great sources of magnesium, a calming nutrient.

This is a grain free, higher protein version of my healthy granola bars – I hope you love it!

  • 1 cup almond flour/meal
  • ½ cup crunchy almond butter
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1-2 TBSP coconut oil, depending if it needs to be stickier
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 scoop/serving Genuine Health Fermented Protein Powder
  • ¼ cup goji berries (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients, except goji berries in the food processor and blend
  2. It should be a sticky consistency
  3. If it's too dry, add a bit more coconut oil or almond butter
  4. Lastly, pulse in the goji berries
  5. Take the mixture and press into a rectangular glass tupperware dish, or a loaf pan.
  6. Freeze for 30-60 minutes
  7. Take out of the freezer and gently cut, so they do not fall apart
  8. Serve immediately, or store in freezer, as otherwise they will be crumbly.
  9. **If you will be serving them at room temperature, you could add another TBSP or so of a sticky ingredient, like maple syrup.
