A Tasty, Chewy Granola Bar Recipe

I give this eight thumbs up!!!  Wait, what?  Well,  Homie, Kylee and I loved it and so did Hannah, Ky’s friend, who stopped by to have dinner with us.  It’s SUPER good and easy to make!  You can make many changes to this recipe to suit the tastes of your family. We prefer the chocolate chips, as oppose to the craisins, but you might want to use sunflower seeds, or butterscotch chips.  Whatever you choose, make it and watch it disappear!


1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats

1-1/4 cups crisp rice cereal

1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup raisins or semisweet chocolate chips, optional


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the honey, vanilla and egg; mix well. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats, cereal and nuts and raisins or chocolate chips if desired.

Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 2 dozen.
