Chewy granola bars are always a great on-the-go snack. I recently hosted a few moms and their children for a playdate at my home and wanted a quick an easy snack on hand for the kids. These chewy chocolate chip granola bars were the answer. I wanted to keep this batch pretty classic and only add mini chocolate chips considering many kids might not enjoy the texture of nuts, seeds and fruits. But every child has their likes and dislikes so be creative when making this snack. This recipe makes 12 bars, so their were plenty for the moms to take with them for the afternoon drive home. It’s considered no-bake, however I do roast the oats for 10 minutes so that’s all the oven time needed to make these. Classic chewy chocolate chip granola bars are a canvas for so many other ingredients of your choice like nuts, fruits, or seeds.
As the video shows, you need minimal equipment including a baking sheet, bowl, sauce pot and a 9×9 parchment lined pan. In just three steps you and your little kitchen helper will be sprinkling mini chocolate chips and preparing the bars for a 2 hour set time in the fridge. Get ready for snack time because these are going to go fast.
Do you have a favorite granola bar? Do you add any special nuts, seeds or fruits?
