Kids love homemade Granola Bars....and so will you!


If your kids like granola bars I think they will love these! There are all kinds of variations of granola bars out there but I think these are my favorite. I like the fact that they use honey instead of corn syrup.

These bars make a great afterschool snack or snack that can be sent to school in a small ziplock bag. For fun you can send them with your kids packaged in cello bag with a cute ribbon..they will love them and so will their friends! {provided they can eat peanut butter~~~}


HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS



2 cups rolled oats

3 cups crispy rice ceral

1/2 cup coconut

1/4 firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup honey

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 mini chocolate chips



Combine dry ingredients (except for the chocolate chips). Set aside. In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar and honey. Bring to a boil stirring constant. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour over the cereal mixture. Coat well....do not add chocolate chips until misture has cooled as they will melt. Pour mixture into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Press firmly until the mixture is really flattened and formed together. When cool cut into small bars.



These granola bars freeze well in individual portions.
