Granola bars have been on my “to make” list for quite some time. In fact, I’ve tried making them before with disastrous results.
So I did some searching for another type of recipe – this one a no bake!
These chewy granola bars are made kind of like rice krispie treats! They’re packed full of healthy ingredients (and sugar) and given the mummy treatment with a drizzling of melted white chocolate. To give the mummies eye, I simply cut raisins, though melted dark chocolate would work quiet well, too.
These granola bars have an airy crispiness from the rice cereal and a smokey sweetness from the local honey I used in the recipe. Because I was mummifying these granola bars with a drizzling of white chocolate I opted to omit the mini chocolate chips.
If you have a granola bar recipe you swear by, by all means use that – and share it in the comments, I’d love to expand my granola bar repertoire!
Mummy Granola Bars
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1/3 C brown sugar
- 1/4 C + 2 tbsp honey
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 C quick oats
- 1 3/4 C crispy rice cereal
- 1/2 C sliced almonds
- 1/4 C flax meal
- white chocolate
- raisins or dark chocolate
- Line a 9×11″ baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.
- In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter, brown sugar, and honey together. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and cook 2 more minutes, until thickened slightly. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla, stir to incorporate.
- Fold in the oats, cereal, almonds, and flax meal. Mix until combined.
- Pour into the prepared baking dish and press firmly. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.
- Remove from the fridge and cut into rectangles.
- Melt the white chocolate and pour over the granola bars to make them look like mummies. Cut a raisin in half for each granola bar to make eyes.
- Store in the refrigerator.
