Home made deliciousness & 5 random facts!













Ok lets me honest.. who's favourite snack as a kid wasn't granola bars? If you raised your hand...you crazy! I have loved granola bars since day one. So maybe I am still a kid at heart...what of it? I love me a good granola bar. And like I always say! Home made anything is always a million...maybe trillion times better than anything store bought! So without further a du {who knew that was two separate words} here is my homemade chewy s'more granola bars! 

CHEWY S'MORE GRANOLA BARS

You will need:

2 cups oats

1 cup rice krispy cereal

3 crushed graham wafer crackers

1/2 cup of mini marshmallows approx. I didn't have mini so I chopped {gooey catastrophe} up large ones. I seriously recommend mini ones!

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup choco chips. or you know...as much chocolatey goodness you desire

Lined 8X8 pan with parchment paper and a little cooking spray { you can make your own cooking spray out of water and olive oil!...saves money and is a lot healthier!}

How to:

1. Mix oats, cereal, crushed graham wafers, & mini marshmallows in large bowl

2. melt together butter, honey, brown sugar on med-high heat. Once melted turn down heat to med and let cook for about 3-4 minutes. Add vanilla and stir.

3. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and mix well so all is coated.

4. Pour mixture into baking tin and press down into all corners with another piece of parchment paper over top.

5. add chocolate chips and push down again.

6. If you can resist {you can always lick the spoon and bowl while these cool, I recommend it!} let sit until chocolate is set and bars are cooled to room temp!

7. Pack these up for your kids OR just eat them on the floor on a blanket or something...you know camp like! :)



Your kids will love them! And don't be ashamed if you sneak a few...because you will...so I'm giving you permission now!

Enjoy!
