Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

These homemade granola bars are so much better than what you can buy at the store, especially since you can substitute for your favorite dried fruit or nuts. Feel free to add your favorite dried fruit, nuts or chocolate to these – it’s completely up to you!

Makes 12 bars

YOU WILL NEED

2 1/2 cups (230 grams) old fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup (80 grams) whole almonds, coarsely chopped

1/3 cup (113 grams) honey

1/4 cup (56 grams) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1/4 cup (50 grams) packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup (60 grams) dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (65 grams) mini chocolate chips

 

DIRECTIONS:

TOAST OATS AND NUTS

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line bottom and sides of a 8-inch or 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil. Then lightly oil or spray with cooking spray.

Add oats and almonds to a small baking sheet then bake 5 minutes, stir and bake another 3 to 5 minutes until lightly toasted. Transfer to a large bowl.

 

MAKE BARS

Combine butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla extract and the salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until butter melts and the sugar completely dissolves.

Pour butter mixture in to bowl with toasted oats and almonds. Mix well. Let cool about 5 minutes then add cranberries and a 1/4 cup of the mini chocolate chips. Stir to combine. (The chocolate chips will most likely melt a little. This is fine, they turn into glue and help to hold the bars together).

Transfer oat mixture to lined pan then use a rubber spatula or damp finger tips to firmly press the mixture into the pan. (Press hard here, this way the bars will stay together once cooled and cut — We press for about one minute to be extra safe).

Scatter remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips over pressed granola mixture then use a rubber spatula to gently press them into the top. Cover then refrigerate at least 2 hours. Remove block of granola mixture from pan then peel away aluminum foil. Cut into 12 bars.

Store bars in an airtight container for up to one week. For the softest bars, keep at room temperature. For slightly harder bars, store in the fridge.

Awesome First Time Buyer

I was searching on where to buy raw honey online,and I didn't know which website to go to. And then I happened to stumble upon your website and it was meant to be. Buy Delicious Honey and its for a good cause. The Honey was so soothing to the soul and my body. I haven't ate raw honey in a long time. I am very thankful and grateful for all the bees,nature and every single worker that helped put this Beautiful Honey together in this jar. I am very pleased and happy when I received my order. It was well packaged and fast delivery. Thank you so much to everyone and especially to our Autism brothers and sisters that helped. I will order again. Much love and blessings to you all.

Great Honey

I love Rango's honey, good flavor and pricing, not to mention they support a good cause. I've had their honey before, but this time I ordered a different flavor and I was not disappointed, great flavor as always.

Our dogs love this honey.

Best honey ever!

Discovered the shop as I took a wrong turn in Tempe a few years ago. I’d never realize how distinctly different honey tastes based on the flowers the bees visit. I’ve been buying Rango honey ever since for the quality of the product and the financial support it offers the people with an autism spectrum diagnosis.

RANGO HONEY IS THE BEST HONEY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH

Each honey has its own flavor profile to enjoy, but it is not even in the same class as what you'll find at the grocery store or farmer's market--pick this liquid gold up and try it today!! You'll see why I keep coming back to it!!!
