Recipe Box: Easy Chewy Granola Bars



Granola BarsThis is a recipe that Laura makes. Delicious and nutritious! 

  • 2 C. whole oats
  • 2 C. Rice Krispy cereal 
  • 1/4 C. flax seed
  • 1/2 C. honey
  • 1/2 C. brown sugar
  • 1/2 C peanut butter
  • 1 C. mix-ins (mini chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc…)

Note from Laura: “I cut the sugar and chocolate chips in half, and you couldn’t tell the difference! Also added a little extra flax to increase the fiber.”

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, cereal, and flax. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the honey and sugar. Stir over medium heat until sugar completely dissolves. Once dissolved remove from heat and add the peanut butter. Add to oats mixture and add mix-ins of your choice. Pour immediately into waxed paper lined 9 x 13 pan. Press firmly into pan to an even thickness. Cool completely, then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
