no bake granola bars


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups granola
  • 1 cup rice/puffed cereal (Rice Krispies, Kashi Go-Lean Honey Puff)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter chips

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, honey, brown sugar, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sugar dissolves (about 2 minutes).  Remove the saucepan from the heat.

Add the granola and rice cereal (and pretzels if using them) to the saucepan and fold the ingredients to evenly coat with the sauce. Transfer the granola mixture to a 9 x 13 inch ungreased baking pan. Press firmly with a spatula to evenly fill the tray. Gently press the chips onto the top.

Place the pan in the refrigerator until the mixture is firm (about 15 minutes). Cut into 2 1/4 x 3 inch bars. Store in an airtight container or wrap in waxed paper.
