No Bake Easy Granola Bars

Let me start out by saying everyone loves these. Anyone who has tried them as instantly asked me for the recipe or begged me for more. It’s easy too.

I made Oatmeal Raisins ones to start with and one day Amy came over and we made chocolate ones and her little 3 year old boy even helped!

Recipe…

1 3/4 cup Oats (I used regular oats and I used rolled organic quick oats whatever you want to use is fine)

1 cup rice cereal (Rice Krispies or off brand)

1/2 cup raisins or 1/2 cup chocolate chips (there is so many different ways you could make these lots Amy and I both would still like to try)

Mix your dry ingredients in a big bowl together. Now when doing chocolate chips we added it in before putting in the hot mixture and they melted so if you want whole chocolate chips I suggest putting them in last.

1/2 stick of butter (I almost always use unsalted)

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

Heat these up on a stove stir them together, once it starts to broil give it about 2 minutes then turn stove off and mix in with your dry ingredients. I’m not going to lie it can be a little challenging to stir and more of an adult job. Once it’s all mixed together. It will be slightly hot still but grab a spoon and I placed mine in muffin pan and Pampered Chef Brownie Pan. But I’m sure putting in a pan and letting cool then cutting in granola like strips would work also.

Let it cool for about 30-45 minutes and then place in little bags or wrap them up and you have an easy healthy breakfast or snack!

They are very yummy! Enjoy!
