Chocolate Chip No Bake Granola Bars
Granola bars are one of our favorite snacks to add to school lunches. This granola bar recipe uses oats, and creates the most delicious, chewy bars! One thing that I’ve found over the years is that granola bar recipes that call for granola as an ingredient tend to be more crunchy, and not a typical chewy granola bar (think, Quaker granola bars). These ones are made with quick oats, not granola, and come out nice and chewy. Originally shared in 2012, this is a tried and true recipe that our kids love!
