Homemade Granola Bars

Halloween is fast approaching and lets be honest, America know how to do the holiday right! From decorations to treats, Across the water is the place to be when it comes to getting your ghoul on for Halloween.

Now that I'm trying to lose weight however, I'm wanting my treats to come without any tricks to my waist so the chocolates and the candy are very restricted. I've been looking at some ideas for healthier alternatives and i think i may have found a winner for my Agents and i ...

They are really easy to make and the base works well with a whole host of toppings so you can change it up or exclude things like the nuts if there is an allergy issue.

You'll Need
25g Rice Krispies
87g Oats
4tbs honey
56g butter
56g brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*Topping of your choice - We used Chocolate Peanuts and white chocolate chips*

To Make
Mix the Krispies and oats together in a big bowl. If your using nuts, at this point you can crush them up. We used Chocolate coated peanuts and Agent M crushed them into smaller bits.

Place sugar, honey and butter in a pot and heat on medium/high till the ingredients melt and start to bubble. Mix in the vanilla.

Pour the liquid into the bowl and mix well with the oat/krispies then add the crushed chocolate nuts and combine.


Spread into a pan and make sure the mix is thick and tightly packed.


Sprinkle over the chocolate chips and allow to set for 2 hours (minimum)

Cut and enjoy :)

There are lots of topping you could try or even a combination like Cranberry and White Chocolate, Strawberry and Dark Chocolate, Orange zest and Chocolate, Raisin and pecans.

There are loads of possibility which will give you a sweetie fix without the guilt feelings :)

Which would your favourite combination be?

  3. This look so yummy, I have never made my own granola but this looks like something we can try. I am going to share on my page. I am so sorry for not replying or getting to commenting. I had some more knee surgery recently and it has caused chaos and meant I am so behind on blogging and keeping track. Mini Creations will be back properly tomorrow and I will be on top of things. Thank you for linking up!

  4. Mmm I love things that have a bit of crunch - we use rice krispies a lot for that reason. This looks like the perfect snack and easy to make too!
