These tender granola bars are not only kid-friendly, they can also be made by kids! The recipe is adapted from Family Feasts for $75 a Week by Mary Ostyn.
Serves: 18 bars
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish (you can use the same one you made the granola with!).
  2. Put the granola, oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Put the sugar, buttery spread, liquid sweetener, eggs, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
  4. Stir the wet mixture into the flour mixture until well combined.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Evenly spread the batter into your prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake the bars for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. They will still be a bit soft; the bars will firm up as they cool.
  8. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting them into 18 rectangular bars.
  9. If desired, wrap the bars individually.
  10. Store the bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Individually wrap and freeze to enjoy later.
