Granola Bar Week: Playgroup Granola Bars

Hope you’ve enjoyed this celebration of granola bars! This is the last recipe I’ve got to share and it’s a good one — Playgroup Granola Bars posted on

I’m not sure many would consider these “healthy” but they are nut free, easy, and we enjoyed them — so if they are a little light on healthy we’ll just ignore that and move on!

Here are the ingredients:

Here’s a pic of all the dry ingredients (oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon, flour, and salt) together with some dried blueberries. The recipe calls for raisins – which we’ve used in the past, but I wanted to mix it up a bit.

Here are the wet ingredients (honey, egg, vanilla and oil) in the “well” created in the dry ingredients:

And mixed together:

In the baking pan:

Post baking:

And the finished product:

The verdict: Very good especially if you like chewy bars. Be sure to cut these before they cool completely, otherwise they get pretty tough and cutting them is sort of tricky. I’ve had good luck freezing them and then putting them in the microwave for just a few seconds before serving!

Hope you’ve enjoyed these granola bar recipes! Please share your recipes, I’d love to try them!

  1. I love this recipe, and make these a lot! The best thing is that you really can’t mess these up. I’ve changed the ingredients around, based on what I had on hand, and they are still good. It’s a great recipe to play around with. I’ve added chocolate chips, dried cranberries, almonds, flax seeds… you name it! Very yummy!
