When cut into 8 pieces, your granola bar will be a reasonable and satisfying size - larger than most granola bars on the market. With the crunch and the chocolate it will also be as satisfying as most candy bars. However, this granola bar only packs a punch of 165 calories.

Recipe Ingredients for Low- Cal Chocolate Chip Granola bars

1 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 serving chocolate chips (look on the back of the bag, mine read 30 pieces for 70 calories)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Low- Cal Chocolate Chip Granola bars

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix the oats, rice cereal, and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

  2. In a microwaveable dish, heat the corn syrup and brown sugar (about a minute or two) until melted and mix together well. Stir in the vanilla and peanut butter. This will also serve to cool the mixture enough before you add it to the cereal.

  3. With a spatula or spoon, scoop the mixture into the cereal and fold in until everything is coated evenly.

  4. With the spatula or the back of the spoon, press the granola mixture into the greased pan until packed firmly. How well you pack it in determines how well the granola bar holds together later.

  5. Let the pan sit about ten minutes until cooled and then cut into 8 pieces.
