Homemade Honey Nut and Raisin Granola Bars

After a close but not so great first attempt at making homemade granola bars, I can finally say with confidence I have an amazing recipe for you all to try!

I will admit, my first attempt was a bit of a gooey mess but these revised bars I had to share with you all. They honestly rock! Well that is if you like super sweet,  balanced mix of crunchy and chewy and all natural #wheatfree, #dairyfree #soyfree ingredients ;).


Here’s what you need:

  • :1 cup Honey Nut Chex
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5 cups of honey
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • baking pan

Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees
  2. In a large mixing bowl pour 1 cup of Honey Nut Chex and smush into a crumble (so no full squares remain)
  3. Stir into the bowl 2 cups of rolled oats
  4. Add the tablespoon of cinnamon, teaspoon of vanilla and cup of raisins
  5. Mix all of the dry ingredients together


  1. . Pour 1.5 cups of honey and 2 tablespoons of hot water into a pot set on medium-low setting
  2. Stir the honey/water until honey becomes thinner and more liquidy
  1. Once the honey has liquified pour over dry mixture and mix fully
  2. When the mixture is completely covered in honey it is ready to go into the pan
  3. Lightly grease the bottom of the pan (I used a 9×9-you can use a larger one for more narrow bars)
  4. Pour the mixture into the pan and spread out as evenly as possible
  5. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees (if you want your bars really hard bake for 30 mins, really chewy bake for 20)
  6. Let pan cool for 10-20 minutes then place in the refrigerator for 40 mins to an hour
  7. Once the granola is completely hardened cut into bars
  8. EAT and enjoy!
