Today, i’m doing something a little bit different and re-posting a recipe I had posted about a year ago. I loved this recipe so much because it’s so incredibly easy to make and I’ve made them numerous times. I wanted to re-share this post because I’ve been having a huge craving, plus, now that it’s back to school season, these are the perfect treats to make to pack in your little one’s lunchbox!
Hope you enjoy… again!
I am so excited for this post you guys. I’ve been dying to make my own oatmeal/granola bars for a very long time. And to be honest, I have no excuse for not making them. So, I made a list for myself and made sure to grab everything I needed at the grocery store this past Sunday. Why the sudden motivation you ask? If you read Simply Stine you’ll know that she posted an oatmeal bar recipe a week or two ago and I just had to try it. So I did. And here it is. It’s a bit different than hers so I posted my own recipe below. I hope you enjoy!
No Bake Granola Bars:
First off, I gathered my ingredients. I cannot make anything without putting everything out on display. I also like to lay out all of my measuring cups and spoons for easy access. Once this was all set up and ready, I grabbed my wet ingredients, measured them out and melted them down in a pot on the stove.
Looked gross, smelled AMAZING. Like Chex Muddie Buddies, which reminds me, I want to make those now too. Anyways, once that was all deliciously melted I moved it off of the heat and added all my dry ingredients. Seriously, so simple it’s impossible to mess this up.
Smoosh it all out into a baking pan and toss in the fridge for at least 4 hours. I know, I know, don’t worry, you can certainly lick the spoon and have as much of this while it’s still gooey as you want. I won’t judge. Using a lined dish totally helps save on dishes and is a great trick to help cut them up later. Just pop out the paper and break or cut up the bars. No sticking!
Just in case you weren’t drooling yet….
