This recipe I have had and enjoyed using for several years now. I have fun making all sorts of variations with it.
Yummy homemade granola bars
- 4 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup (or a little less) brown sugar
- 1 t. salt
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or 1 cup sliced almonds
- 1 cup coconut
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup orange marmalade or Apple butter (I have also experimented with using some plain apple sauce or cooked squash)
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
My recent favorite is a no bake granola bar that I found (via pinterest) on Marathon Mom Blog (Follow the link to the recipe). I have taken this granola bar many places and many people have really liked it and wanted the recipe. I do change up this recipe regularly according to what ingredients I have handy- like in the case of the picture above I didn't use any chocolate and I used sesame seeds instead of coconut. Granola bars are fun because you can make them many different ways.
Do you make your own granola bars?
