Homemade Granola Bars: back to recipe



  • 1/2 c. honey or corn syrup {I used 1/4 c. of each}
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2 cups Rice Krispy cereal
  • 1/4 c. ground flax seed
  • 1 or 2 T wheat germ {optional -- and I did not add this}
  • 1 cup total of your favorite mix-ins {I used chocolate chips, but you could also mix and match dried fruit, nuts, seeds, etc.}

Makes about 24 bars

  • In a small sauce pan, mix honey {and/or corn syrup} and brown sugar.
  • Cook over medium-high heat until sugar is completely dissolved -- stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and quickly stir in peanut butter.
  • Mix the oats, cereal, flax seed, and optional wheat germ in a large bowl.
  • Pour honey mixture over dry ingredients -- mix well.
  • Stir in ch0colate chips, nuts, fruit, and any other "mix-in" you would like to use
  • Press mixture into a 9" x 13" pan that has been greased or lined with wax paper.
  • Let cool and "firm up" --  kind of like Rice Krispy Bars
  • Cut into bars and store in a air-tight container.
  • Enjoy!
