Honey Granola Bar Recipes

When is rains for a week what should be do? I know bake! I love baking and the kids love to help. Here is what we tried out today from A's new cookbook from her school she will be attending in the fall.

Honey Granola Bars

1 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup honey plus 2 Tbsp honey
1/3 cup raisins
1 Tbsp cinnamon

Combine the oats, flour, wheat germ and stir to mix well. Add honey and stir until the mixture is moist and crumbly. Fold in raisins and cinnamon. Coat an 8 inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pat the mixture into pan and bake at 300F for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool to room temperature, cut into bars and serve. Yields 12 servings.

These turned out yummy for sure! They were very easy to make, all in one bowl and then transfer to pan and bake. I had everything on hand to make the granola bars. A nice bonus is they are peanut and nut free! I can send it to school with the kids. Yay! They did get crumbly though and didn't cut well but I think that may have been my fault as I cooked them on the low end of the time. I will definitely try these again and bake a couple minutes more. It does make a nice snack with yogurt.

This is the crumble left over after cutting the squares. I guess it was more like breaking them up. Oh well tasty anyways! The kids have a lot of fun helping measure, mix and pat the mix into the pan. This was a great afternoon activity on a rainy day.

  1. Looks good. I'm looking for lower sugar/less sweet options for my kids (one wont eat sweetened food at all). I may try this.

    Put the crumbs on cooked oatmeal as a topping or bake some apples and sprinkle it on.

  3. The leftover crumbles would be good over some ice cream.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.
