No Bake Granola Bars

So I pinned a recipe a while ago for homemade granola bars and just got around to making them on this rainy Sunday!  They are super delicious and really easy to make.  The took a little longer than the Energy Balls I made a few weeks ago but this makes more servings.



Ingredients
(Recipe Credit- Money Saving Mom)
  • 2 ½ cups Rice Krispies (if you want to make these healthier, you can use plain puffed rice cereal)
  • 1 ¾ cups quick oats (regular rolled oats work too)
  • ¼ cup wheat germ (or ground flax seed, wheat bran, or additional oats)
  • ½ cup additional mix-in ingredients, optional (i.e. shredded coconut, chopped nuts, raisins or other dried fruit, sesame or sunflower seeds, etc.) I used coconut
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup brown sugar 
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
Directions: 

  • Combine first 4 dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • In a saucepan, mix the honey, brown sugar and salt. Over medium-low heat, stir until the mixture comes to a complete boil for 30-60 seconds.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.
  • Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes before mixing in the chocolate chips.
  • Press into a greased 9×13 pan and let cool before cutting into bars.
