Luteal Phase Granola Bars

Luteal Phase Granola Bars

Embracing the luteal phase of your menstrual cycle with nourishing snacks is essential for supporting your body's changing needs. Enter homemade granola bars – a wholesome and convenient option packed with micro-nutrients tailored to fuel your body during this phase.

Why Homemade Granola Bars?

Crafted with intention, homemade granola bars offer a bounty of health benefits tailored to support your body during the luteal phase. Here's why these ingredients are a boon:

1. Hormone-Balancing Ingredients: Opting for ingredients like maca root, organic oats, Medjool dates, and cacao nibs provides essential micro-nutrients like magnesium, zinc, and iron, which play pivotal roles in hormone regulation and mood stabilization during the luteal phase.

2. Energy-Boosting Properties: The combination of complex carbohydrates from oats, healthy fats from sunflower seed butter, and natural sugars from honey and dates delivers a sustained source of energy, combating fatigue and cravings often experienced during this phase.

3. Blood sugar balancing: complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats is the equation for a blood-sugar-balancing snack or meal. Also, Ceylon cinnamon is not just anti-inflammatory, but regulates blood sugar levels too!



  • 2 cups organic glyphosate-free oats
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Prepare the Base: In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, maca powder, cacao nibs, and sea salt. Mix well to combine.
2. Blend the Dates: Pit the Medjool dates and add them to a food processor. Blend until they form a thick paste.
3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix together the sunflower seed butter, honey, and vanilla extract until well combined.
4. Mix Everything Together: Pour the wet ingredients mixture over the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Add the blended dates. Mix everything together until all the ingredients are evenly distributed and a sticky dough forms.
5. Press into a Pan: Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. Transfer the granola bar mixture into the lined dish. Use a spatula or your hands to press the mixture firmly and evenly into the dish.
6. Chill in the Fridge: Place the dish in the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
7. Slice and Serve: Once chilled and firm, remove the granola bar slab from the dish and place it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to slice into bars or squares of your desired size.
8. Storage: Store the granola bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days, or freeze to keep good for 1 month. Enjoy them as a tasty and nutritious snack!
