No Bake Granola Bars


I have never had homemade Granola Bars before making these. I always thought the store bought were so good, wow was I mistaken! I am shocked at how wonderful these were compared to store bought. I will never buy another box of Granola Bars from the store again. I put a lot of goodies in my Granola Barsโ€ฆโ€ฆ chocolate chips, peanuts, dried cranberries, raisins, oatmeal, coconut and Rice Krispies. Then there is the peanut butter, honeyโ€ฆ.etc. Of course you can add whatever you want to your own recipe. Check out my recipe below because this was a wonderful combination of flavor!

  1. They look great! Glad that they taste as good as they look! You are right, some store-bought bars are yummy but some taste like I’d imagine the scrapings from a hampster’s cage to taste. I know I’m preaching to the converted but they are so straightforwards to make and you can experiment until you find the mix that works best. They are economical too!

    • Iโ€™m so glad I am not the only one that feels that way. My favorite part is changing the ingredients (nuts etc) and getting a completely different granola bar. For me itโ€™s that I like to eat these for my sweet craving. At least itโ€™s a little healthier….lol

      • I had them back in the day Diane – I remember my mom making them years ago, then she stopped when I had braces. I had braces on my teeth when I was older – 20-23 years old and was not supposed to eat anything chewy or gooey as they were the traditional braces that wrapped around each tooth, so a pain if you pulled a wire and did any damage with gooey or sticky treats.

      • Yes, after I got mine off, they started using the kind that they just cemented a small metal piece on each tooth – I had two headgears to pull back and up and a four rubberbands – only wore the headgear at night (thankfully) – now they are invisible braces.

  2. Oh wow! Looking for goodies to send home with my sons and son-in-law after our Christmas holiday. These definitely make the list. Will make a batch next week…you know…to try out. I have to taste them FIRST, right? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Homemade granola bars are delicious! Iโ€™m going to have to try your recipe, Diane. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š
