Monster granola barsIn our house granola bars are a staple. They are easy for kids to grab for a snack or even keep them in your purse for quick bite to eat while out. Plus since I’ve starting making them rather then buying store bought brands I have the comfort of knowing what I am putting in them. The kids had been craving sweets and asking for cookies, ice cream… you name it. So an alternative I quickly thought of was just making some granola bars but adding some chocolates to satisfy their sweet tooth. And you know what? It worked! The kids loved the little added touch of chocolates and no more “Can we have something sweet?” Here’s how I made them…

Supplies

  • 1 1/2 cup Rice Krispies
  • 2 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 stick of Butter
  • 1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Mini M&Ms
Granola-Bar-homemadeFirst bring butter, light brown sugar, and honey to a boil. Let it boil until all the grains of sugar are dissolved then stir in the peanut butter.

    I made these today. They were fast and easy to make and were delicious. It would be easy to change the mix-ins to white chocolate chips and craisins or something else. Thank you. Now we never have to eat the processed granola bars again.
