The "Oh So Good" Homemade Granola Bar Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup puffed or crispy rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup chopped or slivered nuts I used almond slivers
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup honey or brown rice syrup to make it vegan friendly
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter or any nut butter freshly ground


  1. Heat the oven to 325°F. Line the baking pan with parchment, leaving extra parchment to hang over 2 of the sides. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Mix the oats, cereal, nuts, and raisins together in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and peanut butter.
  4. Pour the honey mixture over the dry ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are completely coated and start to stick together in clumps.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Use an extra piece of parchment paper to firmly press the mixture into the pan.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes for chewy granola bars or 25-30 minutes for crunchy bars. As soon as you remove the bars from the oven, press them again with the back of a lightly oiled spatula for well compacted granola bars.
