  • Perfect for kiddos, these chewy bars filled with dark chocolate, peanut butter chips, and cereal krispies can be whipped together in a pinch.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup McCann’sĀ® Quick Cooking Rolled Irish Oats
  • 2 cup Rice Cereal
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Spice IslandsĀ® Fine Mediterranean Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Spice IslandsĀ® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter Chips

Topping

  • 1 1/2 tsp Additional Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp Additional Dark Chocolate Chunks

Directions

  1. Combine oats and rice cereal into a large bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine honey, Ā½ cup coconut oil, brown sugar, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil and cook until all of the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes, then add vanilla.
  3. Once the sugar mixture is ready, pour over the oat mixture in the large bowl and mix thoroughly. After combining thoroughly, wait 2 minutes for the mixture to cool before adding the chocolate chunks and peanut butter chips.
  4. Transfer granola mixture to an 8×8 baking dish lined with lightly greased parchment and firmly press the granola into the pan. Take the remaining coconut oil and chocolate chunks and melt in a small saucepan over low heat. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the granola. Refrigerate for 1Ā½ hours so the bars can firm. Once ready, remove the block from the refrigerator and cut into 10 bars.
  5. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
