Sugar-Free Healthy Granola Bars- This no-bake honey healthy granola bar is a very delicious yet healthy snack. It can be consumed in moderation with many health benefits. I used honey in this recipe which is a very healthy alternative to sugar. It is absolutely gluten-free. The benefits of this Wild Honey are this is raw, unfiltered, and straight sourced from the Himalayas which makes it natural. It also has more pollen and enzymes, thereby leading to better immunity. It even works as a great energy booster and it’s a healthy sugar alternative as well.
