Chewy Granola Bars

by Marie on September 13, 2007

These are a yummy treat for me! and my kids. I got this recipe from my good friend, Sherie. They are chewy and homemade, a perfect after-school treat.

Chewy Granola Bars Recipe:

  • 2 1/2 c. Oats – quick rolled oats
  • 1/2 c. Rice Krispies
  • 1/4 c. coconut
  • 1/2 c. M&M minis
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Add all of the ingredients and mix together until combined. Press into a square 8×8 pan. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and score into bars. Let it set completely and then cut into bars. For thinner bars, press mix into a 9×13 pan. They seem to set a little better in the 9×13 pan.

Great Tip: Spray vegetable spray into the measuring cup before you add a sticky substance, like honey! It should slide right off. Thanks, Martha!
