Easy Homemade Granola Bars with Whole Oats

Easy Homemade Granola Bars with Whole Oats

Once you’ve given these oat bars a try chance are good they’ll replace your prepared granola bar purchases.  They are super quick to pull together, decidedly tasty and cost a fraction of what commercial granola bars cost.

Now to be sure these aren’t super health food – they have quite a bit of fat and sugar mixed in with the whole grain oats – but then at least in terms of sugar content that’s not really different from the commercial product.  All the same, these are our favorite for packing along when we head off into the outdoors on adventures where we’re burning loads of energy.

Once you give them a try I’m sure you’ll be keeping this recipe handy.

Servings: bars
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Melt 1/2 cup of butter or margarine on the stove or in the microwave. Use a pot or bowl that is large enough to allow you to mix the remaining ingredients in (saving on dishes!).
  3. Mix the sugar or sugar and molasses into the hot butter or margarine.
  4. Add the rolled oats and baking powder to the top of the sugar/oil and then stir until the whole lot is evenly mixed.
  5. Pat into an 8" x 8" baking pan (I prefer silicon) and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven
  6. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and then slice the bars to the desired size. The mixture will still be friable at this point but will harden as it cools.
  7. Allow the bars to cool for about 30 minutes more and then they are ready to be enjoyed.
