    Cookin'Diva's Note:

    In fall 2008, Starbucks added several "healthy" breakfast items to their bakery case. My husband commented to me, "Look, they have a granola bar that looks exactly like the ones you make!" I checked their list of ingredients and then made modifications to my Chewy No-Bake Granola Bars #236509, so that they are as close to the Starbucks version as possible. Take them to breakfast meetings at work, when you need something MORE than a donut, muffin or bagel.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    SYRUP MIXTURE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Ingredient note: look in your health food aisle for a healthy alternative to Rice Krispies. The brand I found is made by Enviro-Kidz and uses BROWN rice.
    2. 2
      Prepare 9x13 pan with non-stick spray (or line with parchment paper).
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl, toss all dry ingredients. Feel free to substitute your preferred nut or dried fruit.
    4. 4
      In a saucepan, combine brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and allow to boil one minute. (Note: boiling the sugars is what helps the bars become firm and not sticky, so this step is important).
    5. 5
      After boiling, turn off heat; add vanilla and peanut butter. QUICKLY pour this hot mixture over the dry ingredients and toss to combine.
    6. 6
      Pour warm mixture into prepared pan. Wet your fingers and press the mixture down into the pan to compress the bars so they will slice evenly.
    7. 7
      When cool, use a sharp knife to cut into 18 bars (1 long lengthwise cut and 9 cuts across). Enjoy with a hot cup of Starbucks coffee for an authentic experience!
    8. 8
      Note: Starbucks does not list corn syrup in their ingredients, but the sweetener in their list is not readily available. I tried using Maple Syrup, but the bars were very crumbly and would not stay together in bars. Therefore, I found that Corn Syrup is the best ingredient that is readily available.

      I made this recipe up last night and after spending loads on commercially made fruit and nut bars like TRIO and KIND (at over $1.25 EACH), I'll never have to buy them again! These are great for a boost of energy when you need it and easy to vacuum seal for on the go. I omitted the sunflower seeds, apricots and golden raisins and added walnuts, cashews, mango slices and chopped dates. These bars were DEVINE!!!! Will pick up nuts during sales, make these up, vacuum seal them and freeze them. Thanks for the recipe! Gonna try a tropical type next time with mango, pineapple, coconut and macadamia. YUMMY!

      I had no trouble with them falling apart, but I did make sure to boil the syrup mixture for 1 minutes AND made sure to coat all of the ingredients with the syrup mixture. Be sure to only count the rapid boiling time, not the initial bubbling. Also when you put them in the pan, follow the step of wetting your fingers and packing them in the pan tightly. It does help bond them. I actually pulled up my sleeves and wet my whole hands and packed them in.

      I love this recipe, although I have made some changes. The first time I made it I followed the recipe, and it was too sweet and very crumbly. So, I eliminated the brown sugar and increased the honey and peanut butter to 3/4 cup each. I also baked them at 350 for about 10 minutes. They are wonderful, and my husband is devouring them!! ( I do substitute different fruits and nuts that I have on hand)
