I have been using this recipe for several years now. I don’t even remember where I first got the recipe from. These Quick & Easy No Bake Granola Bars are a family favorite.


They are perfect for student athletes to take and eat after a game. My girls loved taking them when they played volleyball. They are a great anytime snack. We’ve even been known to eat them for breakfast!

These will keep for a week. I think. They never last that long in my house! I have also frozen them, and that works well. Just thaw at room temp.
