Double Chocolate Granola Bars

July 16th, 2012 Comments Off on Double Chocolate Granola Bars

My kids love granola bars and they go through them like crazy.  I decided to come up with a recipe that was as close to the boxed version as possible.  Here is what I came up with.  They are delicious, even better than the boxed version and they are fairly simple to make.  Hope you enjoy!
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup melting chocolate (optional) for zigzags on the top


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease one 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, butter, honey and brown sugar. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Lightly press mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Let cool completely.
  5. Invert the whole pan onto waxed paper then cut into bars.
  6. Melt the melting chocolate and drizzle over each individual bar.  I place mine in the freezer for a couple of minutes to harden the melted chocolate.
  7. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the pantry.
