Granola Bars

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CareCook

Works well for the freezer, from 30 day gourmet. I like to double this recipe as it goes really fast in our house.

We really liked the flavor of these bars but even though I baked them at 350° for 25 minutes, they were rather hard. The first day they were a little chewy, but each day after that they got harder and harder. On the third day, the kids started dipping them in their milk and that worked well. :) I omitted the cinnamon since I was using 1/2 chocolate chips and have peanut butter chips. I will probably try these again but I'll definitely underbake them to try and make them chewier. Thanks for sharing!
