Crunchy Granola Bars

Granola Bars

Finished product!

So I promised Rob some granola bars. We’ve been going through more than 2 boxes a week! And today was the day to make them happen.

I bundled the kids up and sent them outside with buckets to catch all the snow we’ve been getting, while I reviewed this recipe and came up with my own.


1/2 cup butter; 1/2 cup peanut butter; 1/4 cup honey; 1/2 cup brown sugar; 1/4 cup light corn syrup

Melt these ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.

Then mix in: 2 cups old fashioned oats; 2.5 cups quick oats; 1/3 cup flaxseed meal; 1/3 cup roasted unsalted peanuts

Granola 1

All mixed up and ready for the pan.

Grease a cookie sheet and press the mixture into the pan. Make it as evenly as you can.

Granola 2

Oven ready

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. I think I over baked mine a bit because they weren’t supposed to be that crunchy. This batch ended up not quite as crunchy as Nature’s Valley bars but almost.

Granola 3

20 Minutes to browned edges


Granola 4

Cool 5 minutes then cut into bars

After I cut them, I left them in the pan for 45 minutes to fully cool before taking them out of the pan.

Get your favorite beverage ready because it’s time to taste test! Enjoy 🙂
