The most easiest, healthiest, chewy, homemade granola bars ever because it took me just 2 minutes to rustle up these bars. Isn’t that cool? 2 full minutes is all it takes to enjoy healthy snacking on the go. Also these bars do not use rolled oats and maple syrup unlike most of the granola bars, as they both come under imported goods in my place, cost a bomb. These bars takes just 5 ingredients that are already available in your pantry and keeping this granola bar recipe as the basic, you can come up with lots of variations that I have also given here.
Earlier I used to make these bars with cornflakes as the kids loved the crunchiness it gave contrasting the soft oats, but recently as I ran out of cornflakes and I had lots of pori (Rice Krispies) left out after making Kaara pori for our snacks, decided to use it in the bars and it was like a combination of both granola bars and rice krispies bars into one single bar.
1. If you are not confident of getting perfect shaped squares or rectangle, after step 6, let the mixture come to room temperature then place the tin in the fridge for 1 hour. You will be able to cut perfect shapes.
2. Instead of cutting into squares, when the mixture is still warm, you can make them into balls instead.
