Difficulty: Easy, 2 hours. Makes 8 bars.
This is a fairly basic granola bar recipe but I had to redo it a couple times to ensure I was getting the right portions so it didn’t turn out rock hard.
Base: -2 cups quick oats -1 cup rice cereal (like Rice Krispies) -½ cup brown sugar -½ cup honey -¼ cup butter or margarine
Apple cinnamon: -½ cup dried apple chips, finely chopped -2 teaspoons ground cinnamon -½ teaspoon nutmeg -½ teaspoon salt -¼ cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds -½ cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)
Chocolate coconut: -¾ cup shredded or finely chopped coconut (unsweetened) -½ cup mini chocolate chips -¼ cup sunflower seeds -½ cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a small saucepan, melt the butter/margarine over low heat. Add the brown sugar and honey and continue to cook on low, stirring occasionally, until the brown sugar dissolves (takes about 2 minutes).
In a bowl, combine the quick oats and rice cereal. Add the rest of the ingredients for the type of granola bar you want to make as listed above. If you’re making the apple cinnamon bars, leave the cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt for later otherwise they’ll just collect at the bottom of the bowl.
Pour the honey mixture over the contents of the bowl and stir with a spatula or spoon to combine. If you’re adding the spices, do so after adding the honey mixture so it’ll stick. Give it another stir to distribute them.
Grease an 8x8in baking pan and then pack the granola mixture into the pan. It’ll be very crumbly and won’t stick together well. Don’t worry about this, it’ll set later. Bake for 25 minutes.
Once out of the oven, the granola will still be crumbly while hot. Again, don’t worry. Place the pan in the fridge on a potholder, and let it chill for about an hour or until entirely cooled. Cut the granola into 8 bars. They can be wrapped in wax paper for on-the-go, or just eaten right out of the pan if you’re like me.
They’re chewy, a lil crumbly, but delicious and make for a great quick snack. If you like, use the base and the instructions provided, but throw in whatever other ingredients you like. Dried fruit, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, you name it. Go wild. You can also toast the coconut and nuts in the oven beforehand. I didn’t because I’m lazy.
