Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1 1/4 cups gluten-free crisp-rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup mini gluten-free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey

Directions

  1. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; line baking sheet with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on all sides. Set aside.

  2. Place oatmeal and rice cereal in a large bowl; stir to combine. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan, mix together brown sugar, oil, and honey. Place over medium-high heat; bring to a gentle boil. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add to oatmeal mixture; stir until oatmeal mixture is fully coated and well combined.

  4. Evenly pour oatmeal mixture into prepared baking dish; sprinkle with chocolate chips. When mixture is cool enough to touch, press down into pan. Let cool to room temperature. Cut into 16 (1-by-4-inch) bars. Granola bars can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week, and frozen up to six months.

    Really Good! I used coconut oil, added slivered almonds, put a handful of chocolate chips at the bottom of the pan and on the top after I let it cool for a bit so they would not melt.

    This was a fabulous recipe, not a thing missing! I made it with coconut oil and they turned out perfect. I did the chocolate chip one but also made an oatmeal raisin variety by adding raisins, cinnamon and vanilla. Made a bunch for our Boy Scout troop. I will never buy granola bars ever again!

    I think it seems obvious that there IS a step missing. Otherwise, why waste our time, and parchment paper, lining a baking sheet with no apparent purpose?

    Delicious! Very similar to other no-bake granola bar recipes online, so I don't think they missed a step here. I used a slightly larger pan to make them thinner, but would not press it down after the chocolate chips are added - too messy to do with a toddler. :)

    I followed this recipe, and the bars tasted like raw oatmeal. The 2nd time I made the granola bars I toasted the oatmeal and rice cereal in the oven at 350° for about 8 minutes. The granola bars tasted better. It seems like a step is missing from this recipe. The recipe needs to be proof read again by an editor.
