My husband and three year old son love granola bars, and I have been searching for a granola bar that they could both eat. I couldn’t find one in the store that didn’t have high fructose corn syrup, were low in sugar and were still delicious and filling enough for my husband. I decided to try my hand at making homemade ones. I came up with this recipe and it is a big hit.
4 Tablespoons of
butter Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup of Raw Honey
3 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter
1/8 Cup of packed light brown Sugar
2 Cups of Chocolate Delight Granola (Bake to Nature)
1 Cup of Rice Cereal (Rice Crispies)
Handful of mini chocolate chips
In small sauce pan melt butter than add honey and peanut butter.
Remove butter, honey and peanut butter from heat and add sugar; mix well.
Measure out granola and rice cereal in bowl and fold butter and sugar mixture in. Mix until all the granola and cereal are covered.
Spread granola mixture evenly into parchment paper lined 9×9 pan and add chocolate chips on top.
Let sit for 20-30 minutes and then turn granola out onto cutting board. Cut in half on way and then cut into granola bars. I got 14 out of my 9×9 pan.
I then wrapped each granola in parchment paper and refrigerated over night.
This recipe filled me up for breakfast and would make an awesome afternoon smack. :) If you try the recipe out let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading!
