Last week’s grocery list left us without granola bars in the house, actually, somehow, we don’t have much of any snacks. All most a state of emergency in our house, but Hubby and I can bake. And bake is what I did.
I can honestly say, these were easy to make, and taste so much better than store bought. I don’t eat store bought, I have been enjoying these.
Homemade Granola Bars

Start by mixing together the honey, butter and peanut butter completely.
Then mix in the rest, minus the add ins. Once you have everything mixed well, you can add in up to two cups of add ins.
Line a 9X13 pan with parchment paper and press the mixture into the pan. Wetting your hands with water to press into the pan without it sticking to your hands.
In a preheated oven at 325, bake for 15-25 minutes until golden around the edges. It will continue to firm up as it cools.
Once it cools completely cut into granola bar sized strips/bars. I love my crinkle cutter for this, it cuts easily, and the kids like to the see the pattern (not on these granola bars though).
These are filling. One bar and your child should stop whining for food. They are super easy to make, the hardest part is getting everything mixed together. I used a mixer, and definitely recommend using at least a hand mixer.Homemade always taste better am I right? Homemade granola bars are no different! Click To Tweet
