Chocolate Chunk Granola Bars

These granola bars are an excellent choice to add into everyone’s school lunches. Very kid friendly! You can wrap them up for a school snack, or after school snack-time! But… they aren’t just for kids. I love these chocolate chunk granola bars! I like to store them in snack sized baggies. And stash them in my purse for a quick, and healthy snack.

Here’s what I did:

I lined a 13 x 9 inch pan with foil. I used a large mixing bowl, and stirred together the rice krispies, quick cooking oats, and chocolate chunks. I poured in a can of sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. I used a rubber spatula to mix all the ingredients together. Making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl. I poured, and pressed, the granola mixture into the foil lined pan. Pressing down firmly. I baked them in a preheated 350 F degree oven, for 20 minutes ( or until the edges are lightly golden brown). I allowed the pan to cool, and lifted the baked granola out of the pan. I sliced 16 bars, and each bar was 4 inches long and 1 inch wide. I stored them in little snack baggies, and kept them on the counter. Ready to easily grab and head out the door.
