If you’re like me and like Quaker Oatmeal Bars, then you’ll love this recipe. They’re fast and easy to make and minimal cooking skills are required!
- 4 tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 cups plain granola
- 1 cup rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
- 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
- Line two 9×5 loaf pans or one 11×7 inch baking pan with foil or parchment. Lightly butter or spray the foil. Set aside.
- Combine honey and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in brown sugar after butter starts to melt.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
- Add the granola and rice cereal into the saucepan and fold them into the sauce until evenly coated.
- Spread the mixture into the prepared pans and press firmly with a spatula to evenly fill. Sprinkle the chocolate and peanut butter chips onto the top of the granola and gently press them down with the spatula.
- Let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes or until mostly cooled and set; lift out of the pan and cut into bars.
You can make variations with mini marshmallows or raisins, depending on your personal taste. For more tips, check out Back to the Cutting Board.
