Chewy Granola Bars

"I like these granola bars because they are chewy...not cakelike, not crunchy....nice and chewy. I've tried others, but my kids always ask for these. The recipe is from TOH."

Ready In:
24 bars




  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, rice cereal, chocolate chips, coconut, sunflowers, peanuts, raisins, wheat germ, and sesame seeds.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the marshmallows, peanut butter, butter, corn syrup and vanilla.
  • Microwave the marshmallow mixture at 70% power for 2-3 minutes, stirring often until well-blended.
  • Quicky stir the dry ingredients in to the marshmallow mixture. You'll have to work quickly as the mix will get gooey fast.
  • Spread into a greased 13-in. X 9-in. X 2-in. baking pan. To flatten the granola bars, I spray the BOTTOM of a second baking pan with cooking spray, nest this second pan on top of the pan with the mix and press down hard.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes.
  • Cool and cut into 24 bars.

  1. Two and a half stars. These are peanut butter rice crispie treats, not the healthier granola bar type snack I was looking for. Very sugary with all the marshmallows. Very peanut buttery as well. The only person who ended up eating any of these (after we all sampled them initially) was the peanut butter lover in the house, but even she didn't particularly like them and never finished the pan.
  2. Loved these! THE BEST granola bars I've ever made. Thanks for a great recipe!
  3. We cut these into 1x1 inch squares. Fabulous for snacking!
  4. These granola bars are terrific! My kids can go through a 24-count box of the store-bought chewy granola bars in seconds, it seems! These bars get two thumbs up from the kids. I followed the recipe to the letter and even my raisin-hating son loved them. I'm looking forward to experimenting and seeing what other flavour combinations I can come up with. Thank you for this great recipe!
  5. These are GRReat. I love them, they are so chewy and moist. I made them and then wrapped them up in individual wrappers and the kids love them. thanks for sharing
