Pistachio Granola Bars

Homemade granola bars are a wonderful snack, on-the-go treat, or even for breakfast! The combination of pistachios, dried cranberries, and coconut makes them irresistible. Here’s an easy-to-follow recipe from our functional medicine Los Angeles providers.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 18-20 bars


2-1/4 c. rolled oats
3/4 c. shelled pistachios, roughly chopped
1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 c. sesame seeds
1 c. dried unsweetened cranberries (like Craisins)
1/4 t. salt
5 T. coconut oil, melted
1/4 c. honey or agave syrup
2 t. pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a half-sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. Combine the oats, pistachios, coconut, sesame seeds, cranberries, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Pour in the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. As functional medicine Burbank experts, we recommend mixing until all the ingredients are combined and evenly coated.
  4. Press the granola bar mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until light golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven. Our functional medicine Studio Citydoctors suggest letting it cool completely in the pan on a baking rack before slicing.
  7. Store leftover bars in an air-tight container at room temperature for 7 days.
  8. Enjoy this recipe from our functional medicine doctors at Functional Medicine Los Angeles!
