Anyway, this recipe is one of two granola bar recipes that our family enjoys. These granola bars resemble a chewy granola bar. Sometime within the next few weeks I'll share the recipe that is more similar to the Quaker Oats breakfast bars.
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
3 cups oats (either quick oats or regular can be used, depending on the texture you desire)
1/4 cup raisins, mini chocolate chips, or for a more blended chocolate flavor just chop up some dark baking chocolate
Our additional tips:
- Line the pan with wax paper, letting the ends of the paper slightly overlap the edge of the pan. This makes for easy removal and cleanup.
- We usually double the recipe and use a jelly roll pan - they get eaten too quickly in our house to just do one batch at a time!
- If the mixture seems too dry and crumbly as it sets, it makes a great granola! Suggestions for preventing dry, crumbly bars: moisten the oats with a couple Tbs of water before stirring them in; make sure to cook over medium heat, even if it seems to take forever for the mixture to come to a boil; if the mixture begins to seem even the least bit stringy, remove it from the heat immediately and mix in the oats.
