No Bake Chewy Granola Bars

After a long trend of buying Chewy Granola Bars at the grocery store every week, I figured it was probably about time I try to put some together on my own 🙂 This recipe is SO easy, and literally took less than 5 minutes to put together.  Best part, the No Bake Granola Bars turned out perfect!

You will need:

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 cups quick cooking oats

1 cup rice krispies cereal

Chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, raisins, whatever else you want for sprinkling on top 🙂

In a sauce pan, combine honey, butter, and brown sugar over a medium heat.  Bring to a boil and allow to boil for about a minute, until brown sugar is completely combined with other ingredients.  While this is boiling, put your oats and cereal in a large bowl.  Once your wet ingredients are well combined, pour them over your oats and cereal and mix thoroughly.  Gently press into an ungreased 9×13 inch pan and sprinkle with toppings of your choice.  Allow to cool for about an hour (or if you’re impatient like me, shove them in the freezer for 10 minutes/until firm)  Cut into bars once set.

I added chocolate and peanut butter chips to mine and they were a perfect, quick, chewy, delicious No Bake Granola Bar!

    These were delicious. The texture is great, which is what I’m most excited about. I substituted 2 T peanut butter for 2 T of butter and it was a great way to get the peanut butter flavor in and use less butter at the same time.

    I believe the wet mixture can also be made as candy.
