This is a slight mod on the low calorie chocolate chip granola bar by hananabanana. It leaves out the peanut butter cause nobody in my house like it and added raisins and craisins. About 145 calories per 56g serving.

Recipe Ingredients for Lower calorie chocolate chip granola bar. (No Peanut Butter)

1 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 serving chocolate chips
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup craisins
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Lower calorie chocolate chip granola bar. (No Peanut Butter)

  1. In a bowl, mix the oats, rice cereal, raisins, craisins 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. This will also serve to cool the mixture enough before you add it to the cereal.

  3. Pour the mixture into the cereal mixture and fold in until everything is coated evenly.

  4. Press the granola mixture into a greased pan until packed firmly. How well you pack it in determines how well the granola bar holds together later. I pound on it with the flat end of a meat tenderizer.

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