Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola Bars is modeled after a cookie favorite. No bake and totally simple.
Chewy no-bake granola bars with a hint of cinnamon, loads of raisins, flax seeds and oats. These oatmeal raisin cookie granola bars are so simple. A great breakfast when you’re on-the-go!
Last year I published a recipe for the best dang granola bars ever. And they are. OH MY GOSH they are. No-bake, drizzled with chocolate, loaded with nuts and dried fruits -- I will love them for forever.
In fact, it’s a recipe I love so much that it needed to morph just a little bit into a new granola bar. One modeled after my favorite cookies. Oatmeal Raisin!!! So now I have two of the best granola bars ever. It’s a granola bar monopoly.
I used the same base for the syrup in this recipe -- brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, honey. But to the bars I added this special ingredient that takes the texture over the top.
Rice Krispies! Or, to be more generic about it - crisp rice cereal. They give the bars this little bit of crunch with every bite, but the texture is still chewy. So much love.
You’ll notice I called for quick oats with this recipe, which is a departure from my normal old fashioned oats. The finer texture of the quick oats works better with the crisp rice cereal, but ALSO!! It lets you skip a step. No toasting the oats here. This recipe is completely no-bake.
It's summer time, which means no-bake is a complete win. If I don't have to turn the oven on in this heat: winner, winner, chicken dinner! But, these do double duty as a great lunchbox filler when the school year rolls around again.
If you’re looking for another no-bake granola recipe, you should definitely try these peanut butter honey granola bites. If you aren’t afraid of the oven, This Nutella almond granola is one of my favorites. And you should definitely check out this healthy oatmeal cookie recipe!
