It's that time of year we're all getting ready to go back to work and the kids are heading back to school! I wanted to sharing with you a super easy, no bake, homemade granola bar recipe which makes a great morning or afternoon snack to keep you chugging through the day :)
Hope you enjoy!
1 1/2 cups rolled oats or quick cooking oats
1 cup rice krispies or rice bubbles
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp talt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup chocolate chips OR raisins
1/3 cup nuts - i use almonds
1 tbsp chia seeds
Prepare a square or rectangle tin with parchment paper.
In a large microwavable bowl, combine your butter, sugar and honey.
Microwave in 30 second increments, for 2 minutes total. Stir mixture after each 30 seconds.
Add in your salt and cinnamon and then stir into the sauce / syrup.
Add in your oats and rice bubbles, giving a good stir so that they get a nice even coating.
Add in all remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
Turn mixture out onto your tray or tin. Press firmly with a spatula to create a base. If you do not press firmly enough, the bars will fall apart when you eat them.
Place in the fringe for 2-3 hours and then cut into bars.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
