Granola Bars by

Source: Megan Bode

And it's not written in there but you can add some flaxseed to the dry ingredients. I hope dad likes them! :)


1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup peanut butter, crunchy
1/4 cup butter
4 cups oats, quick cooking
2 cups crispy rice cereal
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or m&m's


In a large bowl, stir crispy rice cereal & quick oats together.

In a medium saucepan, combine honey, butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then bring the temperature down to low, and simmer till sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Pour in vanilla and stir.

Pour the hot mixture over dry ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are moistened. Press into a parchment-lined jelly roll pan. Press chocolate chips or m&m's into bars.

Pack the granola bar mixture as closely and as tightly together as you possibly can into one end of the pan at about 1/2-3/4 inch thickness.Any thinner, and the bars will not hold together. Let cool on the counter till they reach room temperature.
