In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a no fuss kind of girl. I don’t like to spend a lot of time on one thing so when I came across a recipe for no bake granola bars, I was all in.
I posted this pic on IG yesterday and got lots of requests for the recipe so I thought I’d just share today. Be sure to Pin it for future reference! ;)
We like these much better than the store bought granola bars.
After a few trials, I had to adjust the recipe a bit.
No Fuss Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
- 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 1/4 C. Honey
- 1/3 C. Packed Brown Sugar
- 2 C. Quick Cooking Oats
- 1 C. Rice Krispies Cereal
- 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
- Chocolate Chips
In a large bowl, stir oats and rice cereal together. Set Aside
In a small pot, melt butter, honey and brown sugar over medium high heat until it comes to a bubble. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Pour in vanilla and stir.
Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to coat all ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased small loaf or jelly roll type pan. (In the picture above, I quadrupled the recipe and used a sheet cake pan.) Press down the mixture and pack tightly. If your pan isn’t small enough, push the ingredients to one side until it’s packed firm (this is so they will stick together). Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and press down lightly into the mixture. Cool on the counter top for 2 hours.
*I cut them into bars and put them in the single serve Ziploc bags for a quick grab & go snack.Pin It
