Crispy Granola bars

Crispy Granola bars

ready to go in the oven

These taste great and like the ones you'd buy at the grocery store but without all the preservatives and unhealthy additives.

The trick in making them into thin and crispy bars is just pressing it down into the pan. Also using tin foil or parchment paper to line the pan makes them come out clean and unbroken.

3 Cups oats
1 Cup rice krispies cereal
1/4 Cup chopped nuts
1/3 Cup honey
1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 Cup brown sugar

For drizzling the top:
chocolate chips
peanut butter

Line a 13x9 pan with parchment paper. Warm oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together oats, cereal and nuts. In a separate bowl, combine together honey, peanut butter, oil, vanilla and brown sugar until well combined.

Stir honey mixture into cereal mixture and blend until well combined. Add cereal mixture into pan and press down into pan to make a thin layer.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of oven and with a spreader, spread melted chocolate across entire bars. Drop several spoonfuls of peanut butter across top and once peanut butter warms spread on top of the chocolate.

Let cool until chocolate peanut butter sets and lift out of pan by parchment paper. Cut into bars.

I like to freeze in sandwich bags for school lunches.
