No Bake Granola Bars

I remember as a little girl coming home from school and looking in the pantry for snack.   Often times I would grab a Quaker Chewy Granola Bar.   The other day my little one was looking for a snack in the pantry and I wished we had some granola bars to munch on.   I got to searching online I found a few different recipes.  I liked what one had that other didn’t so I sort of made my own concoction.   So ladies and and gents I would like to introduce these No Bake Granola Bars.   They were a huge hit with me and my hubby and even little man liked his first tastes of granola bars.   These No Bake Granola Bars and exactly what they say.  They required no baking and I had them ready in 5 minutes and ready to eat in 15 minutes.


They remind me a lot of the no bake cookies, but I personally think these are so much better.   So move over No Bake Cookies there is a new No Bake Granola Bar in town!!  Since I made these last week I already made another batch for us to enjoy.


The great about these No Bake Granola Bar’s is you can make these bars as big or as small as you would like.   I know my little 1 year old will eat two to four bites and be done with it.  So I made some small bite size bites and some longer ones for me and the hubs to enjoy.   I wrapped mine up individually in plastic wrap for easy to grab access to toss into lunches or into the diaper bag.

  4. I like the M & Ms on the bars – the kids would get “fooled” into eating them and end up with 99% really healthy things hidden beneath the candy! Your recipe looks great. I like the no-mess way of packaging them for travel!

  20. What size pan did you use? These look like just the thing for my grandsons.

    • Sorry I have been out of touch with internet. I just used a cookie sheet and lined it the parchment paper. This recipe doesn’t make an entire sheet more like a 1/4 but I like mine to be thicker. So depends on your thickness. Hope your grandson loves them
