These rock. We add chocolate chips, peanut butter or nuts to add to them.
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 2 1⁄3 cups quick-cooking oats
- Grease and 8×8 pan. In a pan combine the butter, brown sugar, honey, and corn syrup. Stir constantly over medium heat until butter melts, sugar dissolves, and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and add oats. Stir well until oats are well coated. Spread mixture into 8×8 or similar pan. Bake at 350 for 22 minutes. Cool 5 minutes and cut into bars. Cool for about 1 hour more in the pan and then remove bars from the pan.
- If you wait to cut and remove the bars from the pan until the pan is completely cooled, the bars will be very hard to remove.
This is a very basic recipe that you can personalize and make with ingredients you usually have on hand. I used vanilla flavored syrup and added about 1 cup of mixed chocolate and peanut butter morsels after the mixture had cooked and cooled a little. I baked these in my toaster oven for 22 minutes and think they could have come out a little sooner. They didn't break apart when eaten and were tasty. Next time, I'm trying raisins, chocolate, and cashews.
5 Stars for a granola bar recipe that turns out well. Quick and easy and not a whole lot to clean up afterwards. I made mine in a loaf pan, and they slice really well, plus it can fit in the toaster oven so saves energy. I added choco chips and sliced almonds. I like that this recipe doesn't use a whole lot of corn syrup, but I'll attempt it again with some brown rice syrup to see if it holds together as well. I also think you could use less sugar if you're adding choco chips. Watch the timer, another minute and the edges would have been burnt.
I came across this recipe while looking for GF Feingold diet recipes. I made these tonight and they are DELICIOUS!! I don't think I want to share them with anyone!! I also put in pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, unsweetened coconut and some walnuts. The glaze on them is amazing! I'll be making these REGULARLY!
