I have extremely fond memories of drinking a glass of Ovaltine with my grandfather Eugene Campbell after he finished working at Republic Steel Mill. Then, we would take a nap. Anyway, I still drink Ovaltine & it actually has vitamins in it so it’s good for you too along with be delicious. I thought why not add it to my granola bars & there you have it. A new creative homemade granola bar with healthy seeds and more all packed inside. My family loves them!

How To Make chocolate malted granola bars

  • 1
    Gather all ingredients and add to a microwaveable bowl. Mix all ingredients together with spatula....add only 3 tablespoons of milk. It should all be mixed well together and no dry mix. If still a little dry add 1 more tbsp of milk.
  • 2
    Microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minute. Then press into a granola bar mold or if you don't have one then into a bread pan. It would slice well...or whatever you have on hand. This makes 6 bars. I refrigerate for an hour or so.
  • 3
    Pop the bars out of the mold or pan. Slice them individually if they were in a pan. I will try this next time so I can see better how to do it.
  • 4
    Pop into Tupperware granola bar mold or a loaf pan or whatever you have that will work best.
