Picky kiddos love these chocolatey granola bars. It doesn’t hurt that they are super easy to make and can keep for a good while in the freezer. This Chocolate Granola Bar Recipe doesn’t freeze really hard, so you can pull them right out of the freezer and enjoy them cold.
Granola Bars Freeze Great!
One of the best things about making this granola bar recipe is that they freeze well. I just place freezer paper between each square. Then, I throw them in a plastic zip bag.
I usually pull them out of the freezer a few minutes before I want to devour them! They don’t get super hard in the freezer usually. So this method works perfectly for us.
I don’t know about you but I love no-bake recipes like this one. They are so easy to make, the kids can even help. Sure they might make a mess, measure incorrectly, drop stuff, and cause you to wash 583 more dishes than would normally take place, but they’ll have fun and remember it for a lifetime!
Once you get all of the ingredients all mixed up, you form them. Place the granola mix on a cookie sheet. Then, place a piece of freezer paper on top of them, and squish and mold it into the form of your cookie sheet pan. Next, let the granola bars harden in the fridge.
Chocolate Granola Bar Recipe
- If you have a food processor, process all ingredients together until well mixed
- If you don’t have a food processor no worries! I don’t have one either at the moment. Mine broke, but there are many ingredients in this recipe that will help the bars stick together. They don’t stay together as well but good enough and if they fall apart they are easily just pushed back together if needed! I did find that one of my blenders would chop up the oats but not the whole mixture. Getting the oats chopped up really helps with the texture and ability to stick together.
- So if you do not have a food processor mix all ingredients together in a bowl really well.
- Place the ingredients onto a cookie sheet. I like to spread mine out with a little wax paper. I spread out using just my fingers. Getting it all flattened and pushed into every corner.
- Next, refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
- Cut into squares or whatever shapes you desire and whatever size you desire.
I make several batches at a time and freeze them, by placing freezer paper between the bars and putting them into a plastic bag. I pull them out for a few minutes before they are eaten to defrost a little.
