Maple Nut Granola Bars

1191I am going through a huge granola kick right now. I can not stop making it & eating it. I started making it as a healthy snack alternative & also for some added energy while I train for my 5K & now I am hooked. I just finished off my last batch & wanted to try something different. Tonight with the help of my trusty helper, we made a batch of Maple Nut Granola Bars.

Ingredients:

2 cups of quick oats

1/2 cup of Rice Krispies

1/4 cup of chopped pistachios

1/4 cup of chopped peanuts

1/3 cup of chopped almonds

1/3 cup of real maple syrup

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp of vanilla

1/2 tsp of sea salt

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine oats, nuts, Krispies & salt. Mix in vanilla & honey. Stir until evenly coated. Add maple syrup and mix well. Scoop the mixture little by little into a 8X6 or 8X8 baking pan, packing it well with each spoonful added. Once all of the mixture is added, pack firmly one last time. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars or squares.

    Thanks for linking my granola recipe! I love your recipe for granola bars, I need to try and make them! Mine always come out super crumbly and never hold.

    • Your welcome. It happens to me a lot too. That’s why I like just granola. Lol! Make sure to mix really well. Add a little extra honey or syrup if it does not seem like it is sticking enough. The trick is to pack it really well. Do a little at a time and pack it tight. Let me know how they come out if you try them.

  2. Sounds delicious and love that you used Pistachios, because they are my favorite nuts of all time 🙂
