Home-made Granola Bars

April 24, 2013

Step aside packaged granola bars and make room for this home-made version! They are easy to make and absolutely delicious–filled with coconut, almonds and chocolate chips. I brought these to a picnic and they were gone in a minute.

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for pan
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Butter a 9×9-inch glass baking dish and set aside.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread oats and almonds onto a baking sheet pan and toast 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In the meantime, combine honey, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract and salt in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Cook until brown sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Once oat mixture is done, remove from oven and reduce heat to 300 degrees F.
  • Immediately add oat mixture to brown sugar mixture.
  • Next add coconut and chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
  • Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish and press down, evenly distributing mixture in the dish.
  • Bake 25 minutes, until golden brown around edges.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Cut into squares or bars, wrap individually in saran wrap then store in an airtight container for up to a week.
