Homemade Granola Recipes

I’m always on the look out for a few good recipes to whip up for my kids.  It helps that they really like them too.  Homemade granola bar recipes are perfect for kids snack time.  They are also good for me when I need an afternoon snack!  I bet you never thought of homemade granola bars as a gifted item either.  They make some of the cutest gifts around the holidays.  Perfect time to think of the teachers, co-workers, mail carriers, trash collectors and even your neighbors!  You can put them in a cute decorative tin or simply wrap them in wax paper with a cute gift bows!  These gifts are always a hit!  Perfect for that hard to shop for person too!  You know, the person that has everything and needs nothing.

Most granola recipes have a base ingredient of oatmeal and or flour.  Some people add different types of cereal depending on the taste you are looking for.  I encourage you to get creative and come up with a recipe of your own.  Try Rice crispy cereal, Cheerios, Corn flakes in with the oats as a base of your recipe.  If you are looking for a lower sugar option, try sweetening your homemade granola bars with honey.  If you need help with energy, try adding protein powder to a no bake recipe.  I think we all could use a bit more protein in our diets.

Optional ingredients to mix and match for your perfect granola recipe:  Chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, Nuts, Coconut, Cranberries, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, pitted dates (for sweetness), raisins, pretzels and more…  The possibilities are endless!
