|Raisin Peanut Chewy Granola Bars|
Do remember these childhood goodies? I remember I used to carry a stash of these in my backpack in case I ever get hungry in school. And I still do ;)
Even though we lost one hour of sleep due to daylight savings, I appreciate it very much because there's still plenty of light by the time I get back for taking photos. Speaking of which, my little cousin kept eyeballing them while I was taking photos, so I finally let him a have a bite. He said they were yummy :)
|Chocolate Chip Raisin Peanut Bars|
Follow this quick (took me less than 20 mins!) and easy recipe to get these sweet granola bars...
No-Bake Chewy Bars
adapted from racheyraymag
makes 16 bars
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup honey
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup rice cereal
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar with the honey and butter. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Add the granola, rice cereal, raisins and peanuts to the saucepan and fold the ingredients to evenly coat with the sauce. Transfer the granola mixture to a 9-by-13-inch ungreased baking pan and press firmly to evenly fill. Gently press the chocolate chips onto the top of the granola. Then let the granola mixture set in the refrigerator until firm, about 15 minutes, then cut into 2 1/4-by 3-inch bars.
