Homemade Granola Bars

We love granola bars in this house! Of course, the ones we love the most? Quaker granola bars and most recently, Sunbelt Bakery.

Unfortunately, the prepackaged granola bars have so many additives, that sometimes you may not be sure exactly what you’re biting into. They are also not cheap!

Now, I only buy them when they’re on sale and with a coupon (of course ;-)), but even still, they are a bit pricey. I have tried to make granola bars before, but they just do not have the texture I’m looking for.

Well, this recipe has it all! Great quality, price and texture! šŸ˜€

Now, they are a bit crumbly, so this would be hard to eat on the go, but they are good.

This Homemade Granola Bar Recipe is also pretty versatile so you can add any extra ingredients you like.

I used chocolate chips because I had them already (and they are yummy).

What will you add to your Homemade Chewy Granola Bars?

The possibilities are endless! We love experimenting with new  ingredients and ideas.

It makes for lots of tasty and delicious granola bars.

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Granola Bar:

You can also add a dash of vanilla extract if desired. I have also used coconut oil in this recipe as well.

How to make Granola Bars:

  • Line an 9×13″ baking dish or baking sheet with wax paper. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar and Karo syrup.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer until all of the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. NOTE: Do not over cook this mixture! Set a timer.
  • Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies cereal and granola until dry ingredients are well combined.
  1. Pour cereal mixture into prepared pan and spread evenly with a scraper or rubber spatula.
  2. Gently press the chocolate chips in with your scraper.
  3. Let sit at room temperature before cutting. (Around 20-30 minutes.) Cut into desired size.

How to store Chocolate Chip Granola Bars:

Store in an air tight container, separated with wax paper.

This will help the granola bars to stay fresh and not stick together.

How long can you keep homemade granola bars?

They should last up to a month but longer if you freeze them. I like to make a double batch so I can have some in the freezer.
