The end of school is probably not the best time to be sharing a No Bake Granola Bars recipe, huh?
My kids have been loving these in their lunch boxes but they’ll be perfect for throwing in my pool bag or whatever, too.
Anyway, my kid totally pulled one over on me yesterday. He’d been sick over the weekend. Like, not super sick but he had a cough and he basically slept from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon. So yesterday morning when he woke up and said he didn’t feel better, I let him stay home.
An hour later: “Mom! I feel so much better! Can I play Playstation?!”
And lucky for him I was waiting for the guy to come fix our fence and didn’t want to risk leaving and and missing the appointment so he got to stay home.
I feel like a sucker.
If your kids aren’t jerks like mine, you should definitely make these for them. Y’all know I can’t control myself around granola bars and these were no exception.

- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup crisp rice cereal
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini M&Ms
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, gently stir oats, cereal, chocolate chips, and M&Ms. Set aside.
Melt honey and peanut butter together in a small saucepan over low heat, whisking to combine. Remove from heat once smooth and stir in vanilla. Pour over the oat mixture and gently toss to coat.
Press into the prepared baking dish, using a good bit of pressure but not crushing anything. Refrigerate for at least an hour before cutting.
