Here is my adapted kid and husband friendly recipe:4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup granola (my granola was flavored and it still worked just fine)
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
1/2 cup baby chocolate chips of your preference
Add butter, honey and brown sugar to a saucepan on medium high heat. Mix until boiling stirring pretty continuously. Once mixture is boiling turn down heat to medium low and stir for about two minutes until sugar dissolves.
Add in oats, granola, and rice krispies. I also added in a few extra chocolate chips at this point (I just can't control myself).
Then press mixture into an un-greased 9x9 inch pan (or something close to that size).
Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the top and press firmly into granola bars. Cool in fridge for 20 minutes, cut and enjoy!
They turned out SO YUMMY! Although next time I may try a recipe that is a tiny bit healthier...maybe... I still feel better about eating something that has way less preservatives and tastes better than a store bought variation.
I have been keeping mine in the fridge. If you choose to do this let your bar sit out about ten minutes before you eat it to soften up.
Good luck with yours!
