Homemade Granola Bars

The other day I was in the search of a healthy snack at the grocery store. I've been eating some "warm cereal" kind of like oatmeal...but better. I found some loose granola that looked really tasty. I'd munched on a handful here and there when I got the idea to make it into granola bars. I just happened to have a 1/2 bag of marshmallows left over from another recipe, so these came together very quickly.

I can't even claim this as an actual "recipe", but maybe it's something you hadn't thought of and would like to give it a try. This "recipe" consists of 3 whole ingredients...the granola, marshmallows and a little butter. I microwaved the marshmallows and butter until melted and gooey. Poured in the granola. Patted it into a pan. And done!

 
 The next time I make them I'll be sure to buy 2 bags of granola and use a whole bag of marshmallows to make the recipe go a little further. And I'll admit, by the time you add butter and sugar (marshmallows) to granola...it's not quite as healthy...but it sure was tasty :)

  1. So, we're basically talking about Rice Krispy treats but made with granola? Genius!

  6. Sounds good to me! Sometimes you just need a little something not so healthy :-) And I like recipes that don't involve lots of ingredients. They always seem a bit intimidating.

  8. Sounds awesome, I think I have some granola and marshmallows. I know I have butter, I think I will give it a try. I am always looking for a crunchy snack--well, this one will have a little crunch in the goo :)

  11. Oh, these look amazing! Granola is a weakness of my for some reason. I love making it from scratch but then overeat it which is not too great for the stomach.

  14. I'm game for anything with marshmallows. I was actually looking for something like that a few weeks ago. I tried making my own and it was an epic fail.
