No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars {easy & healthy!}

granola bars final 1Hello Friday. Boy have I missed you.

Guys, I have found THE BEST and easiest way to make granola bars on this sweet planet earth. I found a link on Pinterest to a recipe that had been adapted from Rachael Ray. So, I followed the trail along and found the original recipe….which I then adapted myself {you must have seen that coming…} to be healthier and to use what I had in my cupboards. Pretty darn simple granola bars AND amazingly delicious. I was seriously shocked at how well these turned out for 3 minutes of work. Literally 3 minutes.

If you have kids make these! Heck, even if you don’t, make ‘em anyways. They are great snacks or fast breakfasts.

Here’s what you do: In a small saucepan, heat up some butter, honey and brown sugar over medium high heat. Stir it together and let it bubble for 2 minutes. You want all the brown sugar granules to dissolve.
granola bars 1While that is doin’ it’s thang, pour 2 cups of oats into a bowl with 1 cup of rice krispies. The original recipe calls for 2 cups of granola, but I didn’t have any. Granola can be pretty high cal stuff, so I was happy to use the straight up oats.
granola bars 2 Remove the hot mixture, stir in some vanilla and pour over the dry ingredients.

Stir to coat them all evenly.

Press firmly into a lightly greased small jelly roll pan {I used this one}. I wanted my bars to be a little thicker, so I pushed them into one side. Sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips and cool on the counter for an hour or so.

Once the bars are cool, slice into bars and that’s it!

Hello my pretties!
granola bars final 3See? Now wasn’t that so easy? Feel free to add in any spices or other add-ins that you like. Raisins, nuts, maple syrup, flax seeds, cinnamon, butterscotch chips, coconut, agave, craisins, citrus zest, the list goes on. And, it’s all super healthy! Love it!
