White Chocolate Cherry Granola Bars

White Chocolate Cherry Granola Bars

Making granola bars at home is simple and also a fun activity to do with the kids! With just a couple simple ingredients probably already sitting in your pantry, you will be surprised at how easy it is to make homemade granola bars. 

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, sweetened
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 caps vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients, not including the brown sugar. Take a small sauce pot and add the brown sugar, honey, butter and vanilla and simmer until the butter has melted and all ingredients are incorporated. 

Then, take the sugar mixture and toss with the oat mixture. 

Take a small baking sheet, and spray liberally with cooking spray. Then, add your oat mixture and spread evenly with a spatula. 

Bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for at least two hours before slicing. Store in zipped bags for freshness.

I’m sorry, but everything was great up until I stuck these in the oven.. They look like a huge pan of cookie, nothing like granola bars
