RECIPE: Homemade Granola Bars
Here's a great, super customizable homemade no bake granola bar recipe. Experiment away -- we've made it with so many flavor combinations and they've all been great (hint: cinnamon-infused honey and nutella make for a fantastic Mexican chocolate inspired granola bar).
4 Tbsp. coconut oil or butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 Tbsp. peanut butter (or soy butter or nutella)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1.5 cups quick oats
1.5 cups rice puffs cereal
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips
pinch of salt
- Add coconut oil/butter, brown sugar, honey, and peanut butter to sauce pan. Cook on medium high heat until thickened.
- Turn off heat and stir in vanilla extract. Fold in quick oats, cranberries, and rice puffs.
- Pour out into a parchment lined 8" x 8" pan, flatten slightly (clean hands work best for this), and set aside to cool for 5 minutes at room temperature. Sprinkle chocolate chips (and salt) over top and slightly press the chips into the bars.
- Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes before slicing.
