Homemade Granola Bars Recipe

I got the idea of making granola bars from my hubby last night. He asked me to buy some to take in his lunches. If you have read my blog, you`ll know that I don`t like buying what I can make. So I looked up some recipes online, didn’t fine one I liked the sound or look of. This is what we made instead and have been enjoying.


  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips *
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 apple sauce (you could use oil instead)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Throw it all in a large mixing bowl.

Mix well.

Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 30 minute. Let it cool for no more than 5 minutes before cutting, or it will become to hard to cut.

These tasted so much better than I expected! *I think next time instead of chocolate chips I’m going to try raisins or dried fruit pieces. Hope you enjoy.

On the hunt for a good granola bar recipe. These turned out more list a cookie than a granola bar. I think I'll look for one without flour and egg. I only baked for 20 min they would have been way overcooked in my oven. I added sunflower seeds, peanuts, raisins and dried cranberries. I also added a scoop of peanut butter.

I will certainly enjoy grabbing one of these on my way out the door to the car, but won't make again when this batch is done. Not the recipe for me.

Thanks for posting! Sometimes the hunt for the recipe is so fun.

This sounds easy enough and I already have everything in the pantry.

I am going to try this recipe, because we love granola bars around here, and my husband can go throw several a day. Thanks for the recipe!

These sound really great and pretty easy! I'm going to have to try them and add some dried fruit. My son would love them!
