Easy Homemade NO BAKE Chocolate Chip Granola Bar Recipe! | Video |

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Hello friends! I hope your day is going well. I here today sharing a fun easy delicious recipe for some homemade NO BAKE chocolate chip granola bars. This recipe is really really easy to make and could be made super fast before rushing out the door to work and/or school. Then they could be cut after you have returned. I love this recipe...it was adapted from a Rachel Ray Recipe that can be switched up in so many ways. I made a huge batch but below you will find the recipe for a standard batch or you could follow the measurements in the video for a full cookie sheet worth of granola bars. Hope you enjoy!

Here's the recipe: ( I actually quadrupled it ) 


1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats {not rolled oats!}
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, stir oats and rice cereal together. Set aside. In a small pot, melt butter, honey and brown sugar together over medium high heat until it comes to a bubble. Reduce the heat and cook 2 minutes. Pour in vanilla and stir. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to moisten all ingredients. Pour into lightly greased small jelly roll pan {about 12x8x1} and press out to be about 3/4 inch in thickness. {If your pan isn't small enough, pack the mixture into one side. You really want to press them down so they stick together.} Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and press down lightly. Cool on a counter top to room temperature for two hours or until the chocolate chips are set before cutting into bars. Wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

Recipe Notes:
 If your granola bars don't seem to be staying together when you cut them, you may have not boiled the mixture long enough...you want it to make it just past the softball stage. OR you made them too thin or you didn't pack them in tight enough. Stick them in the fridge for 20 minutes and that should help keep them together. {Be sure not to keep them in there too long or else they'll become super hard!} The next time you make them, try boiling for an extra 15 seconds or so.

This is a delicious recipe that I bet your family would love as much as mine does. I don't have any issues storing these in the pantry and they never last long! If you have any questions or comments be sure to let me know. :)
