No Bake Granola Bars

We love my regular granola bars. I have made them often over the last few months and my family has really enjoyed them. In fact we have had them so much we were a bit tired of them.

I decided I needed to come up with something a little different. I was not only looking for a change from our regular homemade granola bars, I was also looking for something that I did not have to bake in the oven during the hotter months of the summer.

When I saw a recipe for no bake chewy granola bars I knew they might work. As usual I did adapt them quite a bit to make them more like how my family would like them.

First of all the original recipe had pretzels in it. I don’t know about you, but pretzels in granola bars is a bit odd and I thought my family would agree with me on that one.

The other main change I made was to decrease the sugar. These were way to sweet. I cut the sugar almost in half and they were still plenty sweet.

The main thing we love about these is the texture. They are a perfect chewy granola bar.

These would work great individually wrapped and then served in lunch boxes and as snacks.

  1. That looks good. I’ll have to try it soon!

  2. FoodontheTable says:

    Great twist on your original granola bars. I personally like them chewy, so I can’t wait to try this.

  3. These sound wonderful! But, um, can I admit that I’m intrigued at the idea of adding some salty pretzel-y goodness in there? 😉

  4. these look really good! i always am buying granola bars because when i’ve made them before they haven’t turned out. but these look like they would! i, too, think pretzels could be good in here… maybe i’ll try that out :)

  5. I’ve had granola bars on my list of to dos, but it hasn’t happened because of the baking aspect – so I will definitely be making this recipe ASAP!!! Thanks!

  6. Yum, these sound really good. I haven’t made homemade granola bars, but would like to try it.

  7. Have you made this with the crispy granola recipe that you have that already has the rice Krispies in it?
