Homemade Granola Bars with Raisons, oats, rice crispies and granola.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Granola Bars

2 serving Best Choice Crisp Rice Cereal
4 serving Oats Old Fashioned 3 Minute Brand
0.33 cup Honey, Strained Or Extracted
3 serving Maple Pecan Dream Granola
1/2 cup, unpacked Sugars, Brown
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 box Raisins
4 tbsp Shedd's Spread Country Crock Light Soft
0.33 cup (8 fl oz) Water

Recipe Directions for Homemade Granola Bars

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a large 2 gallon bowl. Lightly oil 2 9 by 13 inch casserole pans and set them aside. In a 2 quart heavy pot, combine the sugar, butter, water, vanilla and honey or molasses.

  2. It will be a nice rolling boil the full 5 minutes starting the timer when it comes to a boil. I have found if I just use honey and no sugar, it does help the bars to hold together if I add one cup of soy or whey protein powder to the dry ingredients. This also works using one cup of dry milk powder. Boil the syrup over medium heat stirring well, until a drop placed in cold water holds it's shape, about 5 minutes (soft ball stage). It helps to have one piece of ice in the water so it is a true test of when it is ready.

  3. Not ready yet...

  4. Getting closer...

  5. Ready! Pour immediately over the dry ingredients and combine well.

  6. It will not be too gooey. Just right.

  7. Scrape all the way to the bottom of the bowl.

  8. Divide the mixture between the two pans. Lightly spray the top of the bars with non-stick spray or oil. Press down firmly, being careful not to burn your hands. Transfer pans to the fridge and chill 10-15 minutes. Cut with a sharp knife into bars of desired size. Standard granola bar size yielded about 45 bars.

  9. Place in snack size bags or keep in an airtight container. Ours rarely last more than a few days, so I can't really say how long they will keep fresh.
