I was looking for something quick and healthy that my husband and I could grab on the go. These granola bars are great and you can add pretty much anything you want. Im always looking for healthier sugar alternatives and instead of 1 cup of brown sugar I do 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup maple syrup flakes. I realize most cooks don't have this on hand so just play around with it!BTW - Get the kids involved in this recipe..Easy for them to do and to customize :)

How to Make Easy Homemade Granola Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir until well combined (you can mix wet ingredients in one bowl and dry in another then combine but my motto is simplify the mess...just mix well)
  3. Line a 9x13 pan with wax paper(can use parchment or foil) and pour mixture into pan pressing down slightly. Bake for 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and lift out wax paper from pan. Let cool for five minutes before cutting into bars or chunks.
