Here is a great recipe for a homemade granola bars, it’s great because it’s homemade and you can alter the recipe to your likings, modify how much sugar goes into this recipe and change it up with different dried fruits/nut. As you know I love homemade granola and I love experimenting with flavors, although sometimes I tend to gravitate to the same ingredients, here is another recipe for granola bars.
I wanted to try something different for this recipe so I used fiber cereal making the granola bars a little healthier…I loved the texture/flavor the cereal added.
A few things to mention about this recipe:
- Play around with the ingredients, just use same quantities for example, you can substitute pecans with banana chips or replace the dried blueberries with pineapple
- If you cover the baked granola with saran wrap and then place it in a plastic bowl, it will be more of a granola than a bar
- You can break up the granola and use on parfaits, in yogurt, on ice cream or take it on a hike with you
This recipe is similar to my last recipe for granola bars except I used fiber cereal to add a different texture, I also used dried blueberries, cranberries and shaved coconut
Melted brown sugar with oil and corn syrup
Pour warm mixture over the oats, mix
whip egg whites, until frothy
mix into the oats, place mixed oats into the prepared baking pan
bake until golden brown
let the granola cool completely before slicing
This is just a great recipe to make and have around to snack on! I found these bars were more of a moist granola bar so ultimately I broke the bars into small pieces and used the granola for my yogurt or just to snack on, it was delicious. It’s a great recipe/snack to bring on picnics as well.
I would recommend putting parchment between the bars as they can be sticky from the honey (you can see that in my photo above). Play around with the ingredient list to make these granola bars your own!
