How To Make Granola Bars at Home — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn
I am a self-professed granola bar fiend. Maybe it's an ingrained snacking habit from the countless bars eaten in the back seat of the car before ballet practice all through grade school. Or maybe it's the fact that I tend to get hangry if I go too long between meals. Either way, I nearly always have a granola bar or two close at hand. I've made a lot of granola bars over the years and have tried everything from honey to maple syrup to bind them together. Brown rice syrup is special because it is versatile. The granola bar recipe I've outlined below has my favorite ratios of oats, crispy cereal, nuts, and dried fruits, but it's really just a template. One note: I do still occasionally get bars that don't totally stick together, especially when I'm aiming for chewier bars and especially in hot and humid weather (since the sugar absorbs moisture from the air, I'm guessing).
