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


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2Add 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)
  • 3Line 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.
  • 4Remove from oven and lift out wax paper from pan. Let cool for five minutes before cutting into bars or chunks.
